Closing the Gap in Bucks Nov 2020 Agenda

Sent on behalf of Gareth Drawmer, Head of Achievement and Learning

Dear Colleague,

Thank you to everyone who has already signed up for the Closing the Gap conference on Friday. Please do register if you are keen to hear from primary and secondary schools, both within and outside of the county who have developed strong models of support for pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium.

Closing The Gap

The agenda for the session is attached to this email.

Closing the Gap in Bucks Nov 2020 Agenda

This is the first piece of outward facing work that we are carrying out to support the agenda of closing the gap in Buckinghamshire and will be followed by a series of events to support school leaders in this area.

I appreciate that this is a hugely challenging time for you all, but I hope that you will make time on Friday afternoon to attend the conference. We all recognise that the attainment gap is not going away and that the events of the past six months have compounded the issues for many of our children.

I look forward to seeing you (albeit virtually), on Friday.

Warm regards,


Gareth Drawmer
