Devising Your Next Steps Alongside Pupils, Staff & Governors

Marcelo will work with staff and pupils to get to know your school, your context, your successes and your wishes in great depth.
He will then produce an ideas report specific to your school based on the discussions from the day which will include suggestions of how to incorporate lots of exciting initiatives that build on what you are already doing.
Marcelo will then work with your staff and pupils to ensure that any new ideas or initiatives become introduced, established and embedded within the everyday practice and routine of the classroom, the school and partnership with families and the community.
The list below is an example of the type of conversations that can lead to your next step of school development and form the basis of the day’s discussions and activities:
