Date: 20th October, 10th November and 3rd December 2020

Time: 4 – 5:30 pm (London Time)

These three thought-provoking sessions have been specifically designed to enable all children to learn and thrive within an inspirational post-pandemic school culture and to provide a creative thinking approach to both the recovery and post-recovery curriculum. The sessions will offer a wealth of ideas that explore the potential that we now have to co-create within all schools a personalised, transformative and values-led post-pandemic philosophy of education and of school leadership.

Session 1: Tuesday 20th October - We have all been in The Pits!

This session will focus on how the school can once again be perceived by children, staff and families as an inspirational community where every individual feels that they are able to learn and thrive in our current post-lockdown and ‘not quite yet post-pandemic world’. The session will offer a number of practical strategies that focus on children’s wellbeing and on equipping every child with all they need to be able to succeed socially, emotionally and academically in unprecedented times and moments of uncertainty.

Session 2: Tuesday 10th November - Re-entering the Main Track from the Pit Lane

This session will focus on how both the teaching and learning processes and the daily routine of the classroom enable every child to re-enter the main race-track from the Pit lane, in the knowledge that they would have all had very different experiences whilst in the Pits; some will be racing back out, some will probably do a lap and feel they have to make another stop and some may be very reluctant to leave the safety of the Pit lane and the Pits at all.

Session 3: Thursday 3rd December - Thriving whilst being back ‘on Track’

This session will make reference to the forthcoming book ‘The Joy of Not Knowing’ which will be published by Routledge in December 2020 and focus on practical approaches that demonstrate how the curriculum can be delivered to promote a creative thinking approach across all areas and all times of the day. The session will demonstrate the value of devoting specific time during the year to a ‘Learning to Learn Week’, to explicitly teach the children how to learn, how to think creatively and how to acquire all the dispositions that will ensure that they are able to succeed as individuals, learners and citizens in a post-pandemic world.
