Organisation of Liaison Groups

  • Liaison Group meetings are held at the beginning of every half term.
  • Dates for Liaison Group meetings are agreed by group members, in order to facilitate attendance.
  • The running and administration of the meetings is the responsibility of schools.
  • Agendas are agreed by all members of the group to reflect the needs and issues at the time.
  • Buckinghamshire Council are represented by a member of the Side by Side Partnership Team at meetings.

The Liaison Group structure is a real strength for Buckinghamshire, Headteachers regularly feedback how reassuring and valuable they are. The continued success of the liaison groups will be key to the success of Side by Side through driving local collaborations and shared learning.
