From 10.30 am on 15th until 2.00 pm on 16th November

All Junior Heads are warmly invited to attend this highly stimulating annual event: an excellent opportunity for professional networking, and a convivial conference dinner with guest speaker.   John Edward, Director of SCIS will provide an Annual Update.

Thursday 15 November

The programme on Thursday will be comprised of three themes:

Session One:   Inspiring Confidence with Sustainability

Scott Goddard, Director Live-N-Learn - will provide an opening keynote to the Conference.  Live-N-Learn’s Mindset Matters is a sustainable ‘whole school’ primary package for developing a ‘Growth Mindset’ culture, building resilience & raising expectations.  Whilst debate surrounds the evidence of Growth Mindset, Scott will share his vison and role of Heads in this context.

Session Two:  Sharing of Good Practice

We will be joined by  Kirsten McCrossan., Company Director of The Drama Box.  Kirsten will lead a session:

'The Drama Box: Supporting your Staff, Inspiring your Students' 

 In addition, colleagues are invited to share current initiatives and approaches in their schools.

Session Three:  Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing: Focus on Self-harm

With an increasing number of primary-aged children self-harming, this session will explore proactive approaches to tackling a very current and relevant issue for young people.  The session will be led by Satveer Nijjar who is the founder of Attention Seekers? ( )

The session will take an interactive and informative approach sharing how school leaders can create a culture to reduce stigma, raise awareness and build confidence and knowledge.

Conference Dinner and Guest Speaker

We look forward to hearing insights and reflections from him.  Chris will lead a leadership workshop on Day Two.  More information about Chris can be found by accessing his website -
