Description

Doing School Differently: the power of collaboration

  • How can schools develop a shared vision to create learning communities in which children and young people can flourish?
  • How can the voices of teachers, parents and young people be brought together to encourage reflection on core values and aspirations?
  • What kind of world do we want to create and how can schools foster the attitudes, skills, knowledge and values to build that world?

These are critical questions for our time, made all the more urgent by the climate crisis and the social pressures felt by children and young people. Business as usual is not an option.

A different way forward is needed: one where students are involved as active participants in their education, where parents are treated as genuine partners, where teachers are valued as professionals and where the resources and skills in the local area are harnessed to support learning. Through such collaboration schools are better placed to meet the needs of the communities they exist to serve.

Join Fiona Carnie and colleagues to explore ways of

  • developing a vibrant vision and practice for your school
  • involving teachers, children, parents and local people in finding a positive way forward
  • building the confidence of teachers and others in a collaborative change process

Drawing on research, inspirational practice and school transformation resources, explore how you can build a future for your school that makes the most of the talent and commitment of your school community. We will look at how innovative schools in the UK and further afield have developed alternative uses of time, people and contexts to create a dynamic learning community.

This workshop is for senior leaders, teachers and parent council members in both primary and secondary settings.

Fiona Carnie is an educationalist and writer who has worked in a range of settings.
