Nottingham’s Young Leaders present at Primary Schools Conference

On Thursday 24th May, the Archbishop of York Youth Trust will host a regional conference, at The Derbyshire Hotel, South Normanton, DE55 2EH for primary Headteachers across the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham.

The conference, delivered in partnership with the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, will provide an opportunity for Primary School Headteachers in community and church schools to learn more about the Young Leaders Award delivered at Key Stage 2 and to share in the experiences of those completing the Award.

Joining members of the Youth Trust team on the day will be Samantha Dennis, Deputy Director of Education for the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham and Bishop Tony Porter, Bishop of Sherwood who will deliver the keynote speech.  Delegates will also hear from Kathryn King, Executive Headteacher, and pupils from Norwell and St Matthew’s C of E Primary Schools who will be presenting their work.

Bishop Tony Porter said; “I am thrilled to support the Archbishop of York’s Young Leaders Award at the Conference for Head Teachers.  Holistic education that prepares young people for their future means that, alongside the academic, there needs to be love and compassion which will encourage them to make a positive difference to the world around them.”

Rozy Brian, Strategic Lead for Primary Awards, said; “We are delighted to be sharing the Young Leaders Award with schools in the wider Nottingham area.  We look forward to sharing how taking part in the Award can empower pupils to develop in character and leadership and to make a difference in their communities.”
