Become a truly creative school

How can you be creative in schools whilst at the same time meeting the Government’s focus on measurable basics satisfying Ofsted’s agenda?As the UK’s leading education recruiter Hays Education is committed to sharing meaningful insight and information with the education community. We have worked in partnership with Sir Tim Brighouse and David Cameron on a number of nationwide breakfast forums to share best practice with senior leaders in schools throughout the UK.

We are therefore delighted that Tim and David have written a report and produced a series of podcasts which complement the Creative Curriculum sessions. This document and podcasts embrace the true meaning of becoming creative and sets out ten challenges which we think have to be addressed if creativity is to be a characteristic of a school’s life.

The report sets out thoughts on the following key topics:

  • Finding the right staff in the first place
  • Creative leadership
  • Creative review
  • Creative staff development
  • Making the school environment creative
  • Creative student involvement
  • Creative parental and community involvement
  • Creative curriculum depends on the arts
  • Creative teaching, learning and assessing
  • Creative timetables enable creative experiences
