Successful Schools – ‘it’s not all about English and Maths’
The Annual Governors’ Conference took place on Friday 10 March at Tatton Park, Knutsford, and was attended by both Governors and Headteachers. The agenda included a range of knowledgeable and inspirational speakers who covered the theme ‘it’s not all about English and Maths’, focussing on the importance of non-academic aspects of school learning, such as activity and exercise, self awareness and wellbeing.
