East Anglian School Leaders – Summer conference – 4th July 2024

Dear Colleagues

Following the success of last year’s conference, we are delighted to be able to invite you to our SASH East Anglian School Leaders conference in July.  We have a very full line up of inspirational and informative speakers at this lovely venue and a chance to network and catch up with colleagues from all over Suffolk.  Our keynote speakers include:- 

Miles Berry – explores generative AI, focusing on large language models, their mechanisms, and applications in education. We’ll discuss how school leaders, teachers, and pupils can use this technology efficiently and effectively. The session also delves into the implications of integrating AI at the school level, offering insights into policy formulation and professional development to ensure responsible use. The objective is to provide a balanced overview, equipping leaders with the knowledge to navigate the opportunities and challenges presented by generative AI in schools

Christine Counsell – will discuss Curriculum and assessment.

More speaker details to follow.  If you are a SASH member the event is heavily subsidised, we also welcome extra attendees, deputies, senior leaders and non-SASH members.  You can choose from several options to suit your requirements.  We hope to see you in July.


Nigel Burgoyne & Dave Lee-Allan
SASH Executive Director & Chair
