Finally, we've held two webinars in May which brought together school leaders across the country, in order to:
- Reflect and share experiences of how schools are responding to the crisis;
- Discuss how Organising tools, and tapping into your local Citizens alliance, can help your school navigate the challenges you are facing;
- Give school leaders the opportunity to join campaign teams pushing for change on issues such as Free School Meals, the digital divide, a Living Wage for Key Workers and more.
