Camden Conversations

Our series of Camden Conversations resumed on Wednesday 8 November. We have so many exciting initiatives underway across Camden that our focus this year will be on sharing some of the learning from those.

Camden Conversation | Rights Respecting Schools Award, 6/03/2024

As part of London’s Inclusion Charter, Rights Respecting Schools Awards will be free to all state-funded education settings in London until March 2028. This offer applies to new schools registering as well as those schools who are already working towards the Awards.

Our Camden Conversation on 6 March highlighted the work that is already taking place in Camden schools including the impact of embedding rights respecting principles on pupil behaviour, wellbeing and a reduction in prejudice and discriminatory attitudes. Alix Robertson from the Centre for Education and Youth, shared the key findings from the report reviewing the involvement of some Camden schools (Kentish Town CofE Primary School, Christ Church Primary School NW3, Torriano Primary School and Brecknock Primary School). Katy Forsdyke, Headteacher at Christ Church NW3 and James Humphries, Headteacher at Kentish Town CofE Primary School shared how they have embedded the rights respecting principles in their schools through some inspiring examples.

Camden Conversation | The A-Z of Primary Maths, 7/02/24

Kate Frood gave an animated introduction to her new book at the Camden Conversation on 7 February. ‘The A-Z of Primary Maths’, which is published by John Catt as part of their A to Z series edited by Sir Roy Blatchford, is a reflection on best practice in primary mathematics. Kate talked about ways to make pupils enthusiastic mathematicians and embed mathematical fluency.

Camden Conversation | UN Sustainable Development Goals, 8/11/23

During this session we heard about the exciting ways that Camden schools are engaging with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). CfEY were commissioned by Camden Learning to produce a reviewing the involvement of three primary schools (Torriano, Brecknock and Christopher Hatton) and two secondary schools (UCL Academy and Parliament Hill). Staff explained how they have embedded the goals across the curriculum to improve oracy, develop leadership skills and enhance their local environment. The report contains lots of easy ways for schools to get involved.
