How the site works
A simple guide to how the HeadsTogether collaboration platform
On the surface, the SASH website is a simple presence on the web. Underneath, it's a powerful system for developing a collaborative networking community. The HeadsTogether platform organised into three levels.
This is home to the main HeadsTogether Group (a kind of parking space for all members). Connect your profile with colleagues and access general updates, news and discussion.
Join Themed Groups alongside other professionals to access a range of features (e.g. Documents, Forums, Pictures, timeline etc.). These groups can only be accessed by members.
Inside the Groups are Forums, Pictures, Documents, Timeline and more. It's at this level where people can dive in and out of more specific discussions, pose questions for the community to answer - or download and upload documents.
Sharing wheels not reinventing them
Documents are shared in good faith by members who believe in sharing for mutual support. As a member you can:
- Download and upload documents such as posters, policies, letter templates etc.
- Launch requests for documents to the SASH community
- Get notified of new additions
- Access documents added from various other places and organisations
Groups are where Forums, Documents and Messages are shared
Most of the groups are created by SASH Admin based on consultation and requests - and members can join any group. Features of groups include:
- Easy access to shared documents under specific topics
- Groups are topic-led, so documents, forums, pictures stay relevant
- A clean interface that's easy to navigate

The Power Of Professional Networking in the words of serving headteachers
We are delighted to welcome Andy Robinson and Vanessa Whitcombe as Executive Committee members. Here, along with Nigel Burgoyne (Executive Director) they share their thoughts on how local networking and an outward-facing approach is a strong pillar of their professional practice.
Having worked previously in Essex and London, Andy understands what it’s like to be new to an area, and to have found mutually supportive relationships with other local heads that have helped the school, the Trust as well as his own development.
Vanessa reflects on how peer-to-peer support and sharing outside the Trust has been an important bedrock for development and impact on as many young people as possible, and how we’re likely to see some changing trends in the future.
