About Hertfordshire Branch

The branch covers the large county of Hertfordshire.  Members come from primary schools, nursery schools, children’s centres and voluntary settings.

Meetings are held in schools across the county and begin at 4.30pm until about 6pm. Refreshments are served and attendees are given the opportunity to look around the setting at the end of the session.

We meet three times a year, usually in the middle of the term.  We endeavour to provide a range of speakers linked to national or local policy in response to members’ needs.  One of the speakers will usually be a local colleague with a particular specialist knowledge.

Our plans for the year include:

8th March 2018 - Spring event with The Right Step Dance Company

17th May 2018 - Positive relationships - engaging other adults, conflict resolution and problem solving - with Jane Cook

Our past events include:
