Kaizen Teaching and Learning Conference 18th Oct 17

The Kaizen schools came together for a fantastic T + L conference at Farington Lodge. All the schools gave a 5 – 10 minute presentation on what makes great learning.

The presentations were amazing – common themes to come out were – the use of ‘Agree, Build, Challenge’, Best Mistakes, Learning Pit, Active Pupils, Growth Mindset and Resilience.

We the held a debate on ‘This House believes in Free Speech.’

This prompted a long debate about why free speech allows laws to be written, allows democracy to flourish and people with differing views to see the others’ point of view and come to an agreement.

We also heard why free speech should not be used to say hateful things – which may be offensive when talking about sexism, racism, sexuality or age etc.

The final vote when in favour of the YES – we believe in free speech but should not be offensive.

    What a fantastic opportunity they encountered today. Apart from George telling me about the wonderful food at Farrington Lodge (like being at a wedding!) he thoroughly enjoyed the experience and having the opportunity to stand up and give his opinion on free speech (greatly encouraged to do so by Mrs Morley) was amazing. Many thanks
