· Cost of the School Day learning from local SAC reports
· Inputs from primary and secondary schools across Tayside showcasing their Cost of the School activities and discussing its impact
· Practical ideas from schools across Scotland

· Professional discussion with colleagues across the region on challenges and solutions in your schools.
Teams links for each session will be forwarded to you in advance of each session.
