Leader Briefings

A half-termly Leader Briefing will be distributed to subscribing school leaders in Sheffield. This will continue to take the form of an online Sway so that school leaders can access the information when it is convenient for them and share easily with colleagues.

We have changed the focus of Leader Briefings for 2023/24 and they will now focus on providing local updates, rather than national keynote inputs. This change is alongside the growth in the number of in-person leadership events. This year's programme is below, and will include inputs from local partners (for example Public Health), updates from local projects and initiatives, inputs from the Learn Sheffield team and some of our key partners, including Huntington Research School.
