The Chair noted that this would be JK’s last Schools Forum following his appointment as Assistant Director for Education with Warwickshire County Council. He thanked JK for his contributions to Forum over the last few years, noting that much time had been spent ‘riding the storm’ and taking a significant amount of difficult questioning and challenge at Forum meetings. On behalf of Forum members, the Chair thanked JK for his openness and transparency in discussions both in Forum meetings and in discussions outside, and wished him well for the future.


JK responded, referring to the significant strength of partnership work between the LA and school leaders in Slough and his gratitude for the experience of working in Slough alongside dedicated professionals.
