There is an opportunity for VCSE organisations to be involved with the development of a new VCSE School Readiness Task and Finish group linked to the work of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority around the Mayor’s priority on School Readiness.
The first meeting of this group is taking place at Longsight Community Primary School on Thursday 7th June from 12.30pm – 3.30pm. It will focus on the creation of a VCSE group to drive forward school readiness work in GM and to work through how this connects to the wider GM school readiness agenda to look at the development of the group.
The draft ToR (see attached) will be used to inform discussion at this initial meeting but will not be formally agreed until the VCSE group has been properly established.
There are a maximum of 10 places for VCSE organisations who will help to work out an approach. However, we would like to hear from all interested VCSE organisations, even if attendance at the initial meeting on 7th isn't possible.
If you are interested in attending or being involved in this process, the deadline for expressions of interest/attendance is 12pm (midday) Friday 1st June and can be made by email to Karen.email@example.com
If you would like any further information about the School Readiness agenda and the development of this group then please contact Tom Walley via firstname.lastname@example.org
