CPD needs for our schools are discussed at our half-termly network Headteacher meetings, with schools identifying key areas of CPD and School-to-School support, based on their own School Development Plans.   Strengths within our network schools are identified and curriculum support is offered and shared with school visits; training and teaching and learning observations.
