This is a fantastic opportunity to make sure your offer for children and young people is relevant and attractive to schools. Led by current school teachers and leaders you’ll hear about the day to day life of schools and how arts, culture and creativity is integrated into the school day.

There are separate events for primary, secondary and alternative provision, all hosted by highly experienced and knowledgeable school leaders and teachers in our region.

In a fast changing educational landscape, this is your chance to gain an understanding of the schools’ responsibilities and expectations, how they plan, set priorities and ensure pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum. How can external partners support schools and teachers, what do schools want from the arts and culture sector and how do they find it?
