Recent months have demanded significant flexibility from schools as part of the nation's covid-19 front line response. That demand has often been last minute and confused, but schools continue to rise to meet the challenge.

In this bulletin we include commentary on the continuing safeguarding obligations, and the duty to provide remote learning, alongside school governance updates.

Wrigleys' employment webinar series, replacing our summer annual conference, was attended by many schools, and recordings of each session are now available on our website. Wrigleys' governance webinar series has just begun, replacing our annual governance conference (now in its 29th year!).
