The 2020 Services 2 Schools Conference is now ready to take bookings. The team have been working hard on creating a conference that builds on the themes explored last year, putting into practice and extending the idea of how we think creatively, have clarity on our purpose and how we can better effectively work together for the benefit of the children in our schools.

For the first time, we are opening the morning session up to Headteachers, giving you the opportunity to hear the keynote sessions together, providing the opportunity to reflect on these key messages also.

Our Keynote session will be delivered by Andy Mellor (Headteacher) and Rachel Townsend (Business Manager). Andy was president of NAHT until May 2019 and recently spoke at the Schools and Academies Show. He is a strong advocate for School Business Leaders being senior school leaders and will be delivering a session on how he has implemented this in his school.

You will also have the opportunity to take part in workshop sessions of your choice, details of which will be announced shortly and will be bookable in advance. Workshops will be focussed for each school phase, so there will be something for everyone.

Lunch and the afternoon sessions will be dedicated to Bursars and Business Managers as usual with a selection of a further two workshops and the regular slot from Sarah Rice to give you all the latest financial news and headlines.
