This year's Summit will be focused on how we can get back to looking at the future. This is both in the short term, rebuilding relationships after months out of school, looking at the recovery curriculum and blended learning, but also longer term, looking towards the next generation of students, staff and school leaders and how we can reform some of the issues and inequalities in the system.
