Hydro Pool News at Avalon

Posted by Liz on March 15th 2019

Christmas has come early for us at Avalon School with the news that we have smashed the £1.1m fundraising target and will see the Hydrotherapy Pool they need start to take shape in the New Year. So remarkable has been the pupils’ fundraising that news reached Hong Kong, where a charity was so impressed it pledged a large donation.

Local Leaders of Governance

Local Leaders of Governance

Posted by Liz on March 8th 2019

As part of our work on developing governance and developing future system leaders, the TSC are designating Local Leaders of Governance for experienced governors who are able to share their skills and knowledge with other governors in need of support. At the moment, there have only been 2 applications from sub region A (and we're lagging far behind sub region D). I was hoping you could help to promote this to your schools and their governing boards as it is a great opportunity for governors with specialisms to support the development of other governors as we know what a crucial role they play in school improvement. There may well be people out there interested who only need a little nudge to apply. Attached is a flyer, application form and reference form. The deadline for applications has been extended until 8th March - anyone who misses this deadline will be included in future rounds.

Somerset Gardens Trust

Posted by Liz on March 4th 2019

Education & Schools How does the Trust support school garden projects? The Trust supports schools through grant aid for specified, viable and financially thought through projects. Each application is considered by the Education Committee before a site visit is made to the school.  Schools may also be supported by parents through either PTA or garden club input. The Com­mittee then allocates funding up to £350 towards the project. We also follow up the awards by receiving photographs of the completed project, re-visiting the school to see progress or even being invited to a grand opening of the scheme.
