Find a Voice Not Read a Script: Looking for the Heart of English

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 23rd Jan 2013

What are the priorities for a new English curriculum? Should it enable our children and young people to be creative and communicate effectively in a global context, or is the most important thing to read and write accurately? Looking for the Heart of English involved 400 teachers discussing what really matters in learning English. The government has made proposals which do not meet the high expectations of these teachers and many others. The launch of Meeting High Expectations: will the new primary curriculum be good enough for our children? will bring out the vital learning which will enable young people to find their voices.

This event is part of the continuing conversation about English teaching and what learners really need. The high profile discussion will contribute to the consultation on the government proposals for a new curriculum.

The discussion will include those who contributed to the publication, including Michael Boyd, former artistic director, RSC; Chris Meade, co-director, If:book; Roger Billing, headteacher, Abbots Langley Primary School; and Jenny Lubuska, head of English, Hayes School

Chair: Sue Horner, leader in education and the arts and chair, RSA Academies Board.

Cost: Free
