We would like to invite you to become a member of BPIP for the academic year 2020-2021.
As all board members are serving Headteachers, we recognise that the past few months have brought elements of change that no-one could have anticipated. As we move forward into the next academic year, we recognise that the usual BPIP offer will look slightly different.
Ordinarily, the annual BPIP subscription gives members access to:
The annual BPIP 2-day conference.
- Allocated places on all training opportunities planned throughout the year.
- Half termly briefings.
- Headteacher support from area leaders.
- The BPIP website. A secure platform with a wide range of resources available.
The annual subscription costs depend on school size and are usually:
Below 125 pupils - £250
- 125 – 250 pupils - £500
- 250-500 pupils - £1000
- Over 500 pupils - £1500
However, to reflect the temporary changes, the board have agreed to offer a 33% discounted annual subscription for schools. The revised costs are as follows:
Below 125 pupils – £167
- 125- 250 pupils – £333
- 250-500 pupils – £667
- Over 500 pupils – £1000
As this academic year is still somewhat unknown, we have made the decision to postpone the annual conference. Whilst disappointing, this is something that simply cannot go ahead whilst social distancing is still in place.
We are still working with B11 and other training providers to finalise course content and dates.
We know that the briefings are a useful network for colleagues and a good communication channel, so we are investigating ways to keep the briefings effective and hold them remotely.
The board still meets on a regular basis and continues to work closely with the Local Authority, the Opportunity Area Board as well as other key representatives. Area leaders will continue to be a contact of support which provides you with a platform to share concerns as well as good practice across the district. Where appropriate, feedback is then shared with the board. This is a real opportunity to make sure your voice is heard.
We would like to take a moment to thank our existing members for their continued support. We look forward to welcoming you back. To those who are considering joining for the first time, welcome. We will look forward to speaking with you in the near future.
