This week we talk to Kaley Foran, Lead Content Editor and Nicola West-Jones, Head of Market Research at The Key. We talk about the continuing challenges thrown up by COVID-19 and how schools have been tackling them, as well as thinking about what issues are on the horizon. We also consider how different governance has been during another extraordinary period for schools.

We talk about:

  • Learnings from lockdown
  • School leaders’ impressive ability to make the right decisions for their pupils and their communities
  • The changing role of the DfE against a potentially more confident and empowered generation of school leaders
  • Focus topics for September: preparing for Ofsted, addressing sexism and sexual abuse in schools, wellbeing, curriculum and CPD
  • The experience for governors in this period of largely remote meetings
  • The future of school funding
  • Some of the findings from our recent survey on schools’ plans for catch-up activity
