Hello
I hope that you have had a good weekend. Thank you to all those who have been in touch in the last few days. It’s been great to hear of the fantastic and fun ways you are celebrating the end of term for the children and families in your care. 
I hope this email helps you in these busy times, and if you are already on holiday, I hope you have a lovely break!
We will continue to send you newsletters in the summer holiday in order to keep you up to date. Feel free to save them until you are back from holiday or for when (and if) you check your emails. 
If you need anything, please ask as we are always happy to help.

How HeadteacherChat can help you:
1.  Products and Services  - FREE SERVICE - If you need help finding a product or service, please get in touch as this is what we specialise in. Not only can we put you in touch with the right person straight away, we have also carried out a thorough review of many products, which hopefully gives you some clarity on the quality of the product and what it entails. 
2. Help Hub - FREE SERVICE - If you have a question about your role, or need help to resolve a problem, we can ask our community anonymously for you. I think you will agree that our network is made up of some very supportive school leaders, and there is a lot of knowledge and experience that we can all share together. We are happy to facilitate that for you.
3. PDF Resources - we are in the process of creating templates for school leaders such as school development plans etc which will be available to download. If there are any resources you would like us to create, please get in touch and we will organise that for you. 
4. SLT Network - coming soon! We are in the process of creating a new SLT Network for Autumn 2023. This is an opportunity for you to meet others who are doing the same role as you, to learn from each other, and to take part in conversations about important topics. We have lots planned, including CPD and coaching opportunities. If you are interested in joining this, and would like more information, please send me an email to lucy@headteachers.org and I will send you more details.
