I am delighted with the positive, informed and enthusiastic participation of over 200 delegates who joined us at the Achievement for All national conference ‘Social Mobility, Chance or Choice?’ on 4th February 2020 at Park House School in Newbury.
We welcomed Professor Dominic Wyse (President, British Educational Research Association), James Bowen (Director of Policy, NAHT), Joffre White (National Patron for Reading), Lewis Moody (former England Rugby, CEO Mad Dog Academy), the Mayor of Newbury, head teachers and senior leaders from across the country - Newcastle, Cheshire, Cornwall, London, Cambridge - as well as our national network of specialist Achievement Coaches and the whole Park House School team! Committed, collaborative and engaged professionals joined sessions and workshops that ranged from Ofsted (of course), leadership, wellbeing, special educational needs, social mobility, parents and carers and STEM, covering early years right through to post 16.
AfA will be taking selected sessions on a national tour, beginning March 2020… watch this space to find out what AfA will offer in your locality. In the meantime, please watch this brief highlight package from the day. There will also be a photo gallery in the near future.
