Visit from the Latvian Minister for Education
Today, Mr Greig and Mr Nicholls had the great pleasure of welcoming the Minister for Education and his delegation from Latvia to Thomas Tallis School to talk about creative learning the impact of our involvement in the Creative Partnerships programme. We had a fascinating discussion which focused on the need to encourage learners to ask questions, to become leaders of their own (and others') learning, to take risks and make mistakes, to support schools in their drive to provide an exciting, contemporary curriculum and the value of building social capital in order to support all learners. Paul Collard, national director for Creativity, Culture and Education was also present at the meeting and described his first visit to Thomas Tallis School as "inspirational".
