Education to understand the world

  1. 1. Education to understand the world and change it for the better Carolyn Roberts Head, Thomas Tallis School
  2. 2. Excellence  through  crea/vity                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         We  believe  that  crea-vity  is  crucial  for  young   peoples’  development.  We  therefore  offer  an   excellent  educa-onal  experience  based  on   crea-vity  in  all  our  disciplines.  We  want  our  young   people  to  understand  the  world  they  inherit  so  that   they  can  change  it  for  the  be=er.  We  are   commi=ed  to  specific  habits  of  mind,  to  being   inquisi-ve,  collabora-ve,  persistent,  disciplined  and   imagina-ve.    We  work  with  passion,  dignity  and   style  and  we  value  individuality,  playfulness  and   innova-on.    
  3. 3. Excellence  through  community                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 We  are  an  inclusive  community  offering  an  en-tlement   to  great  opportuni-es  in  a  friendly  and  disciplined   atmosphere  characterized  by  excellent  rela-onships.     Everyone  is  known,  loved  and  included  personally  in  our   big  family.  We  value  fairness,  equality  and  jus-ce  and   respect  each  other’s  cultures  and  giEs.    We  work  closely   with  parents  and  local  people  and  we  prepare  our  young   people  for  a  global  future.  Leadership  is  dispersed,   shared  and  effec-ve.    We  value  trust,  care,  happiness,   en-tlement,  inclusivity,  equality,  rela-onships,   considera-on  and  love.      
  4. 4. Excellence  through  engagement                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             We  want  everyone  in  our  community  to  learn  and  develop   together  through  authen-c  engagement  and  excep-onal   teaching.    Our  young  people  love  learning  because  of  our   commitment  to  knowledge,  our  common  crea-vity  and   cohesive  community.  We  educate  them  to  become   independent  thinkers,  working  with  their  individual  talents  to   learn  and  achieve.  We  share  high  aspira-ons  and  expecta-ons   for  ourselves  and  our  school  and  we  expect  that  learning   con-nues  well  beyond  lessons.        We  value  par-cipa-on,   communica-on,  praise,  experience  and  empowerment.  
  5. 5. Excellence  through  challenge                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         We  take  our  responsibili-es  seriously  and  we   scru-nize  our  progress  carefully.    Every  year  we  set   ourselves  new  challenges  and  review  what  we  have   achieved  so  that  all  the  doors  in  the  world  are  open   to  our  young  people  when  they  leave  us.    We  want   to  make  our  aims  real  for  every  member  of  our   community,  so  we  hold  one  another  to  account   with  intelligence  and  thoughHulness.    We  ac-vely   resist  dehumanizing  influences  on  educa-on,  but   we  value  learning,  performance,  aspira-on,  risk  and   courage.

  8. 8. •  Coe:  children  learn  when  they  have  to  think  really   hard   •  The  hard  work  of  making  a  rela-onship  with   ideas   •  Rela-onship  between  teachers  and  pupils   involved  in  the  development  of  knowledge   •  Academic  disciplines  as  public  forms  of   understanding  in  which  society  has  conversa-ons   about  itself  and  its  future  (B).   •  Not  about  the  employment  market,  but  about   learning  
  9. 9. Powerful knowledge •  Dis-nct  from  everyday  experience   •  Systema-c,  arranged  in  subjects,  available  for   generalising   •  Specialised  so  needs  specialists   •  Not  F1  or  F2   •  Educa-on  driven  by  learning,    not  assessment  
  10. 10.

  11. 11. 10 Principles 1.  Knowledge  is  worthwhile  in  itself.     Tell  children  this  unapologe2cally:  it’s  what   childhood  and  adolescence  is  for      
  12. 12. 2.  Schools  share  powerful  knowledge  on  behalf   of  society     We  teach  what  young  people  need  to  make   sense  of  and  improve  the  world        
  13. 13. 3.  Shared  and  powerful  knowledge  is  verified   through  learned  communi/es     We  are  model  learners,  in  touch  with  research   and  subject  associa2ons        
  14. 14. 4.  Children  need  powerful  knowledge  to   understand  and  interpret  the  world     Without  it  they  remain  dependent  upon  those   who  have  it  or  misuse  it    
  15. 15. 5.  Powerful  knowledge  is  cogni/vely  superior   to  that  needed  for  daily  life     It  transcends  and  liberates  children  from  their   daily  experience        
  16. 16. 6.  Shared  and  powerful  knowledge  enables   children  to  grow  into  useful  ci/zens     As  adults  they  can  understand,  cooperate  and   shape  the  world  together      
  17. 17. 7.  Shared  knowledge  is  a  founda/on  for  a  just   and  sustainable  democracy     Ci2zens  educated  together  share  an   understanding  of  the  common  good      
  18. 18. 8.  It  is  fair  and  just  that  all  children  should  have   access  to  this  knowledge     Powerful  knowledge  opens  doors:  it  must  be   available  to  all  children      
  19. 19. 9.  Accepted  adult  authority  is  required  to  share   knowledge       The  teacher’s  authority  to  teach  is  given  and   valued  by  society      
  20. 20. 10.  Pedagogy  links  adult  authority,  powerful   knowledge  and  its  sharing     We  need  quality  professionals  to  achieve  all  this   for  all  our  children.
