The Great Big Small Schools INSET Day

6th January 2025 – Online

The Great Big Small Schools Inset Day is a joint endeavour between the Chartered College of Teaching, the Church of England, and small school leaders.

Join colleagues working in small school settings across the country, for a day of thought-provoking discussion about evidence, research and education through a small school lens.

We will hear from a range of leading experts as well as fellow small school practitioners about how to make the most of the opportunities presented by small schools as well ways to overcome some of the challenges.

We hope the day will be a celebration of the work small schools do as well as the opportunity to hear from colleagues and experts from across the country to support your school’s ongoing journey.
