Inspired by several people, especially Ffion Eaton, I decided to start a Learning and Development Bulletin at school.

I went with using ‘learning’ and ‘development’ rather than including ‘teaching’ or ‘research’ because I wanted to make sure it was accessible to all members of staff. I’m conscious that ‘teacher’ gets used as a blanket term but for those of us that aren’t one there’s always a bit of doubt as to whether we’re included. The name Relay was the result of a frustrating afternoon with thesaurus. I settled on it as it’s symbolic of the main purpose for the bulletin, to share and pass on information between members of staff. I want to encourage everyone to contribute to Relay – whether that’s writing an article or review, or simply prompting discussions in the staff room. I’m aiming for half-termly publication and so far I’ve managed this (with a bumper summer edition in my first year). It’s mostly stuff I’ve encountered at conferences/teach-meets or via Twitter but I’ve tried to go for a spread of topics and opinions.
