Pt England School Vision for 2019 - Russell Burt

This is where we're heading and what we're focusing on this year:

Russell shared what the major focus of 2019 is going to be for us this year. Some key statements or ideas that stuck out to me from what Russell shared this morning was:

  • We need excellence for every child from every walk of life. Every kid deserves the best no matter their past or present. This starts with me!
  • We mustn't reach only for equity but liberation!
  • We get the teaching and learning right when we:
    • deliver the curriculum REALLY well
    • use 'Learn, Create, Share'
    • visible
    • high expectations
  • What does our planning look like? Is it good enough to produce equity of excellence
    • creative integration in planning for learning
  • Cultural responsiveness - is this happening in my day to day at PES?
  • What do we need to standardise?
