A few months ago Frank met Dave McPartlin at a glitzy event in Blackpool.
Dave, Headteacher at Flakefleet Primary School in Fleetwood has recently spoken out publicly about the current Ofsted arrangements and how these were impacting on his wellbeing as well as other senior leaders. He mentioned some work he was proud of at his school so we decided to record this week’s Frank and Stan Chat in the school’s new community cafe.
The chat explains why the cafe is important to the school’s community and how it was funded (Spoiler alert: No school funds were used in the making of the cafe). He also gives an insight how he feels about his leadership role and we all consider the chaos that appears to have been at No.10 during Covid.
We all consider the terrible events that are taking place in Gaza and how teachers must try to navigate their way through this with their pupils.
