Learning and Student Wellbeing Team Days. Dates for the Learning and Student
Wellbeing Team Days are published in advance, and Team members are
expected to note these in their diaries. Learning and Student Wellbeing Team
Days are on Thursdays and usually occur twice in a school term. Agendas are
distributed prior to the day.

If, from time to time exceptional circumstances arise that prevent attendance, staff
members are required to attend another meeting/event of significance through
their Line Manager, and then forward this request to the Assistant Director –
Learning and Student Wellbeing.
