The New World of School Leadership Conference

Friday, February 10th, 2012

An inspiring and information packed Conference held at the Copthorne Hotel this Thursday and easily one of the most  Educationally Creative days I’ve ever attended!

Many thanks to Noel Dunne at Creative Alliance (www.creativealliance.org.uk) for “squeezing” me in at the 11th hour, and a huge thank you for all the organisers involved at the hotel and with The New World of School Leadership event itself.

Brilliant discussions presented by Professor Mick Waters, Charles Leadbeater and Paul Collard (Creativity, Culture and Education, NGO) made the day such a great event!

I hope that the attending School Heads had the “light-bulb” moments go on in the way some of us Industry Practitioners did.

As the UK government reviews the national curriculum and design technology’s status as a compulsory school subject, the Design & Technology Association, the James Dyson Foundation and industrial designers Seymourpowell have started a campaign to secure the future of design and technology education.

A key part of the campaign is this movie featuring industry experts and leading designers talking about the importance of design education. Contributors include fashion designer Paul Smith, Jaguar design director Ian Callum, Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic, Design Council chief executive David Kester and the founders of Seymourpowell.

Have a look at www.designcouncil.org.uk for more information and links.

If you’re involved with Early Years and Primary education, we’d like to hear from you!

Monday, June 27th, 2011

We are currently undergoing an extensive research period with local Early Years Education providers, Schools and Teachers to attempt to identify in which areas they may need additional support or information.

We think that the early years of children’s learning are vital for them develop happy and fulfilling lives as they grow. Creative use of their imaginations and the development of inventive, constructive thinking as well as Nurture and behavioural issues are at the forefront of our agenda.

So if you are reading this because you have recently been contacted by us and want to know more about our ethos, or what we’ve been up to recently in the schools creative arenas then please feel free to have a look around the site.

Our focus to date has been mainly but not exclusively on Keystages 3 and 4 with special attention aimed at Creative thinking and increasing IT based skills. We are now looking to take our experience, feedback from over a year’s worth of in school creative workshops, and fresh ideas and thoughts from teachers and people involved with early years and primary education, to develop modules and teaching aids for younger children.

We hope you find our site and ideas interesting and if you have any questions please feel to contact us by email or phone.

Richard Allport Q3

Wednesday evening saw the opening of Q3 pupil designed “in animi sonus” music and visual fused installation.

Invited guests were treated to a surreal exploration of students’ emotions, feelings and thoughts on life, expressed through sound-scapes, visual imagery and some bizarre props, all installed in spot lit darkness.

Sarah Mellors, Deputy Head of Q3 Academy commented:

“Never in my time at Q3 Academy have I ever seen anything like this, amazing work! I felt an array of emotions from sadness to joy, amazing maturity to vulnerability. I am overwhelmed!”

Creative Partnerships and Q3 Academy are considering potential plans for a public viewing of the installation next month and repetition of the event annually.

Special thanks go to Miss Burroughs, Miss Mellors and Mr Dawson for their assistance and enthusiasm on this project.

Interesting stuff! Watch this space for more news…
