For the recent TeachMeets I’ve organised I’ve used the Scottish Schools Database to send an email to every single school in the area to be forwarded onto staff in schools. It’s quite labour intensive, but I’m convinced this helped get new faces along to both tmLothians11 and tmSLFringe12.
It took about 40 mins to get all the East Ayrshire Primary & Secondary schools into an Outlook Mailing group, but at least two of the contacts given are out of date, being former HTs. I might be better off contacting the councils directly, asking them to publicise whatever we organise.
Drew, I was really sorry to miss the last one but just felt awful. Would really like to come o the next one. I know that Jenny, one of my primary colleagues is keen too. Perhaps the last week of feb? I will send an email round the rest of the staff. Alieon
