Enfield Headteachers - Working Together

enfield heads

Karen Jaeggi and Dominic Smart are hosting several Zoom conferences to which Enfield Headteachers are welcome to attend. 

Below you will find the different conferences along with dates, times and joining instructions.

We will keep this updated to reflect new things being added.

To your right you will see documents that are discussed and shared from the conference.


In this unprecedented time, working together could not be more important. As a result, we have decided to hold some Zoom conferences in relation to the biggest issues we currently face. While we cannot promise all the answers, these will be a great opportunity to: 

  • Ask questions 
  • Share good practice, solutions and advice 
  • Formulate solutions together 


Each conference will be held via Zoom. Each participant will be asked to mute their microphone and indicate on the chat if they would like to contribute. The nominated chairperson will facilitate the discussion. The conferences will be kept focussed and adhere to timings. 

To book your place, please email Anita Vaghela: anitavaghela@attigoacademytrust.co.uk
