Inquiry Conference – Preparing for the new Primary Curriculum: 18th June, 2010

Organised by Surlingham Primary School, School of Creativity, this conference will be of interest to school leaders, class teachers, governors, advisers and others engaged in creating meaningful, relevant and challenging educational experiences for children.

This day will be a rare opportunity to participate in a guided discussion with colleagues, experts and children on the future of education and the challenges and opportunities created by the publication of the new primary curriculum due for implementation in September 2011.
After keynotes from ‘expert witnesses’ Chris Watkins from the Institute of Education and Luke Abbott, director of, delegates will work in special interest groups, each with a inquiry focus. During the day there will be opportunities to draw on the expertise of Chris and Luke, the experience of children and staff from Surlingham Primary School and the knowledge, strengths and experiences of other delegates at the conference.

The aim of the conference is not to decide the outcome or ‘deliver’ a single point of view, but to gather together like-minded professionals and allow them the space, time and resources to discuss and share their thoughts and ideas for the future of education: A very rare opportunity.
