    A Broad and Balanced Curriculum KS3 & 4”, was held at the Dunkenhalge Hotel Blackburn Road – Clayton Le Moors Lancashire BB5 5JP Blackburn on 21st June. The speaker was Paul Dyson-Knight, Team Leader Secondary
    Advisors at LCC. Paul had done this presentation for us in the West of the county at the Spring workshop
    and it was again well received and very informative.

    As with all our conferences and workshops, all governors from member governing bodies were welcome.

    Although this was a secondary subject, it was also of value to primary governors to see how
    children are expected to develop post 11 and to primary governors who may be secondary ones in the future.
