I spent most of this week working alongside Oldham local authority.
As you will recall, Oldham is classified by central government as being an ‘Opportunity Area’.
Hi all, welcome back to the final half term of the year.
I’m writing my blog a day earlier than usual to give you my perspective on the Panorama programme that aired last night on the BBC.
To say that I was shocked wouldn’t be accurate.
That’s how we do it in Oldham!!
I’ve had the absolute privilege of spending 4 days with the most amazing group of people.
It’s official – Hawthorns is outstanding (again).
Well, what a week. I’m sitting at my desk at 4.45pm on a Friday still reeling from events.
Welcome back everyone. I really hope you all had an amazing break.
We are now moving into our busiest term.
I’ve had a week of particularly mixed emotions.
Earlier in the week I was left reeling from (yet another) BBC Panorama investigation into two multi academy trusts.
Another week passes.
On Tuesday I spent the afternoon with Professor Barry Carpenter. Barry has just written a new book, ‘Girls and Autism’ (click here for details).
I’ve spent quite an amount of time this week working alongside colleagues from Ofsted.
