Our Leading a Whole Education at Primary (LAWEP) programme supports school leaders to deepen and extend their approach to a whole education. LAWEP programmes a whole education approach to leadership culture, curriculum design and teaching and learning.
The Leading a Whole Education at Primary programme is designed to bring together school leaders who are committed to working together to deliver a whole education entitlement for all pupils.
Participants on the programme will deepen and extend their understanding of what and how they can deliver a whole education within their own school through local and national collaboration.
School leaders complete an audit against 12 aspects of a high-quality whole education, highlighting one aspect to focus on in the year ahead.
Leading a Whole Education at Primary provides the opportunity to reflect on your school improvement journey, offers support for your next steps and enables inspiration through school visits, sharing of best practice and inputs from expert speakers.
