National webinar today – Learning from the Pandemic
HEP would like to share information about a national webinar today, 5th July, 4-5pm, hosted by Camden Learning:
Learning from the pandemic: schools at the heart of their communities - what should we retain, restore and reimagine?
Monday 5th July, 4-5pm, Zoom
Schools have played a critical role in the pandemic – and their role at the heart of communities has been key to this. Schools’ existing strong connections with the local community and local services, and their role as a trusted source of information, have been recognised as critical; but schools have also rapidly developed a range of new partnerships and initiatives to support children and families in far-reaching ways.
As we emerge from the pandemic:
What should this role look like in the longer term?
How can we better understand the work school staff have done to centre schools in the community?
What is it important for schools retain?
How can schools build and embed processes to continue to act as valued anchors in the community without duplication or unnecessary burdens?
To what extent is this sustainable for schools?
Chair: Christine Gilbert CBE (Chair, Camden Learning)
