Register your free places: The role of schools in their communities
This webinar is being hosted in partnership with Teach First.
Schools have always been a key part of their communities. Not only are they places where children learn and get prepared to live successful lives in the future but they are also places where relationships are built and where civic responsibility can be developed. As such, schools are ideal places to reweave the fabric of society.
This community-facing role, over the past few weeks, has been put under an important spotlight as thousands of teachers and school leaders have been supporting huge numbers of families across our nation.
Can we build on this inspirational work schools have done over the past two months? Does this offer us a vision for schools beyond the crisis? Or do we risk asking schools to do too much?
Join the debate and hear from school and community leaders who’ve developed great systems to truly embed community organising practices across their institutions and communities.
