European Commission Workshop Held at President Kennedy School
On Wednesday 3rd May President Kennedy School hosted a European Commission workshop which focused on innovation in schools and how to share best practice with schools, not only in the UK but in Europe.
President Kennedy School and Willenhall Community Primary School have recently been involved in a European Commission study which explored innovation in schools.
Both schools were chosen because of their track records that see their students achieve strong educational outcomes whilst operating in challenging contexts.
The study is an international study looking to provide information and pointers to policy makers across Europe as to how they can develop innovative pedagogies and school organisation practices across their jurisdiction.
Guests included Kirston Nelson, the Director of Education (Coventry City Council), Rimantas Dumcius (Project Director) and Martin Whittle (Study Team Leader).
Teachers and students from President Kennedy School, Willenhall Community Primary School, Whitmore Park Primary School and Barrs Hill School attended along with parents, governors and other education specialists.
The workshop was a chance for stakeholders in education to share good practice both here in the UK and in Europe and was a great success.
