It’s been two weeks since I announced I was having to take a break from updating the site but it seems like an awful lot has happened.
First and foremost, can I say an enormous thank you to all the people who have sent me messages about the site. Whether by twitter, email or even in the post, I have been extremely moved by your kind comments and I appreciate every single one of them. Thank you for taking the time to contact me and sharing your thoughts, your feedback and your experiences of Schools Improvement Net – I am very proud of the fact it has been useful and that I have been able to make a contribution to the valuable work so many of you do.
To those who enquired about my health, please be reassured that I am absolutely fine but I’m also aware enough to know that I couldn’t keep pushing things so hard for much longer without there being any consequences.
Can I also express my thanks to those who offered help, payment for subscriptions or suggestions of how the site could keep going. The situation for me is that while many of these proposals sound sensible, the practicality of putting them into place is something I would really struggle with at the moment.
However, all might not be lost.
I have been approached by a number of well-respected organisations doing interesting things in education who have expressed an interest in possibly taking over the running of the site and who appear to have the internal resources to make it viable on a more sustainable footing.
Nothing is agreed and I cannot make any promises other than I am trying my best to find a solution that works for all parties and means you can get the updates and emails back again as soon as possible.
Thanks again and I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks to @SDupp for the lovely cartoon!
