This event offer a unique opportunity to;

  • Experience the school’s innovative ‘Continuous and Enhanced Provision’ curriculum in practice – Visit classes during lessons and speak to staff and pupils. You can watch a short film about Slow Education at St Silas Primary School here.
  • St Silas’ International Award Winning Building: The school was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects Northwest regional prize after being named one of the top buildings in the UK and Europe. The building was collaboratively designed to fit the style of teaching and learning that the school has developed. Read more about the building here.
  • Meet with other education professionals who have developed or are interested in developing ‘Slow’ approaches to teaching, learning and school leadership.
  • Be a part of a Network of schools, teachers and education professionals who share a belief in the importance of educational experiences which focus on depth and quality of learning, for real-life purposes. This will also be an opportunity to shape what the Network might look like.

Slow Education was launched a year and a half ago and has achieved a lot in that time, including presentations at the Institute of Education’s London Festival of Education, the Sunday Times Festival of Education and interviews on the BBC’s Today Program and Breakfast News. Support from Sir Ken Robinson has ensured growing international interest plus local and national networks of schools who share the Slow Education philosophy.
