Dear Members

On behalf of the DAPH Executive Committee, we would like to invite you to attend the DAPH Annual General Meeting which will take place at The Jack in the Green Inn, Rockbeare EX5 2EE on Wednesday 4 July 2018. The AGM formalities will form part of an overall review of work undertaken by DAPH during 2017/18 .

Those wishing to attend the Annual General Meeting should complete the Online Booking Form. Apologies can be submitted via email to the DAPH office.

See draft  Minutes DAPH AGM 2017. There are no proposed changes to the DAPH Constitution.

Nominations to join the DAPH Executive Committee

Nominations from Headteachers are invited to fill  3 full vacancies and up to 4 associate member vacancies on the DAPH Executive Committee from 1st September 2018. It is recommended that any nomination is discussed with and carries the full support of the Governing Body of your school.

The role of DAPH representative will include representing the primary phase at designated working groups, attending regular DAPH Executive Committee meetings and other events. Expectations and requirements of the DAPH representative role will be outlined in a Service Level Agreement (see D R A F T  example SLA) to include rates of reimbursements to the representatives school for meeting attendance etc. Term of office is typically 2 years. 

Nominations to join the DAPH Executive Committee should be submitted via the online Nomination Form to be received no later than noon on Friday 29 June 2018

All nominations to join the DAPH Executive Committee will be considered at the Annual General Meeting. In the event that the number of nominations received exceeds the number of vacancies then a ballot will take place with all members present at the AGM able to vote.

Want to get involved but have concerns about time commitment and expectations?

Following the recent summer Briefing, a number of colleagues have expressed a willingness to become more involved in the work of DAPH, possibly supporting the Executive committee undertaking representation at meetings where they have a particular area of interest or knowledge. This would not necessarily involve full membership of the DAPH Executive Committee, however communication will be essential to ensure that outcomes and any actions arising at meetings are brought to the attention of the Executive and wider membership. This may offer an opportunity to those colleagues who would like to contribute to and represent views of the primary phase but have limited capacity - if you would like to nominate yourself for a representative role, please note this on your Nomination Form.

If anyone wishes to discuss the role of DAPH Executive Committee members please contact the DAPH office or a member of the committee (current members are advertised  H E R E).

We very much hope you will be able to join us on 4 July 2018 but in any event we will advise all member schools of the outcome of this process before the end of this term.

Yours sincerely

Paul Walker  |  DAPH Chair
