Meeting local headteachers

Recently the ship was host for a visit of 20 headteachers from Freetown. Tommy and Nikki were asked to provide some training about curriculum development. Tommy started with a discussion about foundations by asking what the headteachers thought the purpose of their school was in order to demonstarte that any further decisions the school makes about curriculum need to come from a clear idea of why the school exists.

"What is the vision for students leaving the school?"

Without a good answer to that question schools cannot know whether they are achieving what they want to.
