This Week - 16/02/2020

What if this is all real?



On Monday I had a meeting at Marianna's school to start the headteacher recruitment process. As chair of governors you're expected to lead on it a lot so I was hoping we'd be coming up to interviews for the new head at Croesyceiliog Secondary by now, so I could get some practice in. Sod's law means the latter process has stalled, of course, so thank God for HR support!

Then there was a school open afternoon on Tuesday, so I was back in to look through Marianna's books. She seems to be making good process and I was really impressed by the evidence base across all the kids' books. Teaching in primaries is so innovative these days - I really hope curriculum reform will start pushing it through secondaries the way it needs to be.

I chaired Children and Young People scrutiny committee on Thursday, looking at the EAS (South East Wales Educational Achievement Service) business plan. I should have been more on the ball, to be honest, as it went over time and we still didn't get through all the questions we came up with at Wednesday's pre-agenda meeting. I did manage to bring up my usual points about governor training and some of my concerns about the sustainability of school-to-school work though. You can watch the whole meeting on webcast.

Other than education stuff I had licensing committee (webcast) and various bits of casework. At home I wrote 12k of fiction for the first time in months... I barely managed to scrape 25k in the whole of last year!

I missed quite a few days of blogging this week so had to go and backdate some posts yesterday... I ended up with guides to Moxie Teenz and 'N Style Girls dolls, and posts about Safer Internet Day and my top five Zelfs for the Friday Five series. I also wrote a review of Dizzy Rhino's party in a box after winning one from TheSchoolRun website.
