We have recently become a Creative Partnerships Enquiry School, and as part of that we are looking for a New Media and/or Film  practitioner to work with a group of approximately 30 year 7/8 pupils who have mixed record of attending and engaging with school.

Our enquiry questions is:
Can we through working with New Media develop an approach that will re-engage more pupils with learning in school?

We are looking for an inspirational and dedicated practitioner who will help us develop the project in a student-led approach. We are hoping to learn strategies for our teaching and learning in how to engage all our students better. We are hoping to learn from the project how we can make working with new media and student voice sustainable in the long-term for the school.

Most of the contact time will be in the autumn term currently planned about half day a week for seven weeks before the autumn half-term, with some initial planning sessions with students and staff in the summer term.
We are also hoping to have a project launch in the autumn term.

We have left the brief deliberately open, so the practitioner can form the project with the student group and staff.
