Dear Members,

Welcome to this week’s edition of the BSA member newsletter. Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday (Thursday, 18/11) for the joint BSA and Sacpa Annual Safeguarding conference. More than 80 delegates attended online and it was great to have so many of you with us to take a closer look at all the latest issues relating to safeguarding and child protection.

If you weren’t able to join us, recordings from yesterday’s sessions will be available to purchase, which you can do by contacting the BSA Team via

Next week, myself and other members of the BSA Group Leadership Team are very much looking forward to visiting Rockport School in Belfast for our Irish Boarding conference, which takes place on Wednesday (November 24). There is still time for you to book a place, so if you haven’t already done so, please click on the link above to secure your spot, and we look forward to meeting colleagues from Ireland and Northern Ireland there.
