January 2017 Newsletter
Welcome to the second edition of the new BTSA monthly newsletter.
The strapline for BTSA is “Releasing Potential”.
It is at the heart of all we do, and how we try to do it. It also happens to be one of my New Year’s resolutions. I never tire of hearing stories of how teachers and school leaders have helped staff and pupils alike to achieve the almost impossible, and certainly the unlikely. That is why we do what we do. That is one of the reasons we became a teaching school, and why we like working with other schools, their children and teachers.
This year promises to be no less exciting as we play our part on a local, regional, as well as national level , alongside the DfE, RSCs, LAs, Dioceses to ensure that every child, no matter from what background, goes to a great school.
I wish you and your teaching colleagues a very Happy New Year … oh, and if you have a spare moment, why not watch the video below and see ways in which other people have definitely taken this one seriously … though don’t try it at home!
Director of BTSA and Chair of the Teaching Schools Council
