Who and why attend
Dear colleague,
The Guardian invites you to join us at our national schools summit for a day of solution-based learning, debate and discussion. The event is designed for school senior leadership teams and addresses the opportunities for strategic improvement in a changing system. 
In the context of educational reform, wide-ranging policy shifts and new accountability structures we understand the necessity for schools to share innovation and best practice to help them improve. Therefore the  programme has been developed to be a mix of high level expert speaker led sessions and peer discussion groups.  Speakers include:
  • Barbara Bergström, founder and chairman of the board of directors, Internationella Engelska Skolan (IES)
  • Dr Hilary Emery, chief executive officer, National Children’s Bureau
  • Peter Hyman , head teacher, School 21
  • Professor Robert Slavin, Institute for Effective Education, University of York and director of the Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University
  • Christine Gilbert, visiting professor, Institute of Education and managing director, CGA 
  • Joe Hallgarten, director of education, RSA
  • Toby Young, lead proposer, co-founder and chair of governors, West London Free School
The event covers a range of topics including a debate on curriculum reform, strategies to maintain staff morale and examining what educators can do to help close the inequality gap. 
Booking your place is quick and simple
