Designing an Expansive Curriculum of the Head, Heart and Hand

There is renewed interest in how we can offer our young people a broader, more expansive and more engaging curriculum that develops the whole child. This course is your chance to find out how School 21 has developed its broad head, heart and hand curriculum, and to work through practical ideas of how you can develop your own.

Developing High Performing Teams

You believe and want a Big Education – one which encompasses the head, the heart and the hand. An education that not only delivers great results, but also develops the whole person. An education which trusts and develops high performing individuals at all levels. An education system that is focussed on excellence and high-performance.

Introduction to ‘Fast Feedback’ with Ivy Learning Trust and Big Education

In collaboration with Big Education, we will share our story of how we abolished written marking and embedded Fast Feedback to create truly effective learners with ownership over their own learning; whilst simultaneously reducing teacher workload. We’ll facilitate an exploration of how you could create something similar in your context.

Leadership and Strategic Communication Playbook

The pandemic has made one aspect of our leadership even more important: communication. Get it right and we can build a great team spirit and sense of community to get through a crisis and build strong next steps.
