• Finding out about the changes to Artsmark
• Getting a scheme of work exploring Land Art on the Sefton coast linked to the Footprints Project that involved several Sefton Schools

The day will be a mixture of presentations, activities and discussions with a chance to network with colleagues from across Sefton and beyond, and find out about a wide range support that’s available to schools, much of it for free!
