This is your chance to find out about Bradford’s Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP). There is strong evidence that children who participate or experience cultural education (arts, drama, dance, music) learn more effectively. The Cultural Education
Partnership is seeking to strengthen and promote opportunities for our young people.
You are invited to get involved and make a difference to the lives of children and young people in the district. The Public Forum for Education (PFE) is an open forum where everyone with an interest in education is welcome to come along and contribute.
Speakers from Feversham Primary Academy and Riddlesden St Mary’s Primary will talk about how cultural experiences transformed their schools; Christian Bunting, Teaching School Director at St Edmunds Nursery School and Children’s Centre will talk about the
Early Years Cultural Offer; and Linda Wright of Riddlesden St Mary’s Primary will review Keighley’s first children’s literature festival.
There will also be a chance to listen to feedback from the Youth Voice Survey. The Chair of the LCEP, Jim Hopkinson, will be there to talk about the role of the Partnership. Musical entertainment will also be provided by Feversham Academy.
The PFE independent chair is Jackie Walters, a local chair of governors, National Leader of Governance and a Bradford Leader of Governance. Senior elected members and Council officers join the debates and listen to views. They report back on what they have
done in response to what you have said.
The presentations will be followed by round table discussions and an opportunity to share your ideas with the panel and ask questions. There will be registration and a buffet from 4pm. The meeting will start at 4.30 pm and finish at 6.30 pm.
