RfP Bristol Conference Review

Simone Goward reviews the recent OU/UKLA ‘RfP: the thread that connects’ conference held in Bristol

Simone reports that the conference was outstanding. The key message, that the work we do in schools must be targeted specifically to the needs of our children and not simply a string of ‘Twinkle’ activities, echoed throughout the day. Inspirational talks by the key speakers Julie Doyle (Sneinton C of E Primary school and winner of the Whole School Egmont RfP Award), Nikki Gamble (Just Imagine) and author Gill Smith provided much food for thought, as Simone explains in her full review (see downloads to the right). 

Thanks are due to the staff at the University of the West of England who hosted the event.
