Description

The Power of Collaboration: a new narrative of change

  • 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, questions that are unanswered by the unremitting focus on a narrow national curriculum and a rigid accountability framework. This approach is exerting undue pressure on children and teachers - to the detriment of all.

A different way forward is needed: one where teachers are valued as professionals, where students are involved as active participants in their education and where parents are treated as genuine partners. 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 governors in building 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 governors in both primary and secondary settings.

Fiona Carnie is an educationalist and writer who has worked in a range of settings. Her focus is on building the democratic voice and participation of teachers, students and parents to create dynamic and forward-looking schools. She is the founder of Parent Councils UK and an Adviser to the European Forum for Freedom in Education. Her latest book, Rebuilding our Schools from the Bottom Up is published by Routledge (2018).
