A Manifesto for Excellence

 RC WebsiteHeader 978x243px v3

I decided to write ‘A Manifesto for Excellence in Schools’ to tell the story of Foxfield and Woodhill primary schools, both part of the Inspire Partnership, and their journeys to success.  It struck me that for too long, the narrative of improving our education system has centred on the idea of being ever more ‘rigorous’ or ‘uncompromising’ - as though these vacuous concepts could ever be considered as a strategy in themselves. 

By contrast, believing in people, communities; focusing on providing curriculum experiences which connect skills with application and opportunities to challenge thinking, really has the capacity to transform the possibilities within schools.  In other words, bottom up, learning centred leadership.
