Inaugural conference of the Medway Network
July 12, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
School culture encompasses beliefs, perceptions, relationships and attitudes that shape and influence every aspect of school life. But it also includes more concrete issues such as the physical and emotional safety of pupils, marking and assessment and how a school embraces and celebrates cultural diversity.
This inaugural conference of the Chartered College of Teaching’s Medway Network provides an opportunity for Senior and Middle Leaders, Governors and all those who want to strengthen the culture within our schools, to focus on the wellbeing of staff, children and young people. The aim of the event is to build a local collaboration, bringing together expertise, to create schools conducive to professional development, fulfilment and wellbeing.
