In building effective schools it is crucial that senior leaders and governors listen to key voices and bring them together to develop a common sense of purpose.

"When young people are involved in decisions about their learning they become more motivated, develop a more positive attitude and this helps raise outcomes" - Professor Jean Rudduck

"When teachers have a say in school decision-making, this leads to a better learning environment for students, which in turn raises attainment" - Richard Kahlenberg

"When parents are engaged in their child's learning it is equivalent to adding 2-3 years to that child's education" - Professor John Hattie

Valuing teachers as professionals, involving students as active participants in their education and treating parents as genuine partners helps to create a strong and resilient school community that is best placed to meet the needs of the community it exists to serve.

Join Fiona Carnie and colleagues at this workshop to discuss how voice and participation contribute to improved outcomes for students.

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 within your school community. Using a range of case studies we will look at how innovative schools develop participative approaches to actively engage their teachers, students and parents and create a dynamic and forward-facing learning community.

This workshop is for senior leaders, teachers and governors in both primary and secondary settings. Places are limited so book now to guarantee your participation.
