"Just - thank you so much. It’s inspiring to listen; it’s empowering to be listened to."
"I have loved hearing the passion that each speaker showed. I originally came because I saw Alison Peacock's name and wanted to hear her speak. I have enjoyed ever single speaker's contribution, as well as Alison's"
"To have eminent and inspirational speakers across the wide range of curriculum has been excellent. I will take time to reflect on 'actions' I identified over the course of days for my school. Lots!"
"I have reflected seriously about how much talent I have in my school re subject expertise and realise that with an injection from another school's subject specialist I could develop my own."
"I feel rejuvenated and my beliefs have been reaffirmed. I can go back to school with enthusiasm instead of dread."
"It has made me realise how important it is to look at the staff who have subject leadership roles. Are we playing to our strengths? Do members of staff have 'hidden' expertise that we are unaware of. It has made me realise that teachers' passion and enthusiasm needs to be the drive for subject development and enrichment."
"It has given me time and opportunities to talk to others about subject teaching so that I encourage staff to make more explicit the subject teaching. Also to build up more specialist teaching opportunities across the school and wider trust."
"Primary headship MUST unlock passion and inspiration with subject teaching in order to be contagious"
"It has exposed me to colleagues and subject experts, who, despite all the pressures of leadership that dominate our daily workloads, still care passionately about teaching and providing rich, exciting and stimulating experiences for our children. That is why I came to the profession and it is wonderful to know these principles are alive and well."
