Steering Groups Update

Truro School Steering Groups Update

You will be aware that we set up a Covid Steering Group at the start of term to bring together key staff to ensure our planning for and response to the pandemic was ongoing and agile. Updates from this Group are published every week in this bulletin. I am delighted to announce today that we will this term be setting up three other Steering Groups to bring staff and wider stakeholders together for the ongoing evolution of the school.

The first is an Equal Opportunities and Anti-Racism Steering Group. It is right and fitting that this Group begins its work in Black History Month and builds on the engagement of the school last term with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The second is a Sixth Form Diploma Steering Group whose remit is to explore ways to further enhance our Sixth Form educational experience (academically and otherwise) for pupils entering the Sixth Form from September 2021 .

The third is a Digital Strategy and Communications Steering Group that will work on not simply our resources and technology use, but how we can capitalise on and ensure coherence in how we communicate and use technology going forwards.

In due course, these Groups will invite and welcome input from stakeholders beyond the staff team, including pupils, parents and the wider community. I am very excited about the recommendations that will emerge and the impact on our future development next year and beyond.

I am also very appreciative of all who volunteer their time and expertise to help drive the school forwards in these ways.

Mr A Johnson
