Welcome to the invite for this term’s Jordan’s meeting. We decided to delay our meeting to just after half term in the hope that as we would be preoccupied with the immediacy of full school return there would be more certainty about the future by now in troubled times. Well, in some sense there is now ;- we know we are going to be in a COVID world of ‘bubbles’ and now ‘tiers’ and also tears (sorry – pun intended!) for the long haul.
This of course presents challenges for how to do governance within this new normal. We now have to do all the governance stuff that was put on the ‘back burner’ last spring. So it seems timely to be sharing our ideas and experiences in the light of DFE/NGA advice received of how we are doing this, what is happening in our schools so we can raise questions, share concerns and build on local good practice.
