Pedagogy before Platform - Defining and maintaining educational vision and values during a global pandemic with Abi Chase
Manage episode 291256907 series 2423949
For this episode we welcome one of our lead partnership school colleagues, Abi Chase. Abi is associate headteacher at Bassaleg School just outside Newport. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Abi had the exciting task of revamping and redefining the school's vision and values around pedagogy. When Covid-19 hit, Abi's work had its ultimate test!
In this conversation, Abi explains how she worked to 'rebrand' the school's priorities, and how she then used these to keep a steady ship as the school was challenged by the need to move to remote teaching and learning almost overnight in the Spring of 2020.
There are plenty of interesting insights into leadership and strategy, as well as where we go from here as educators now that there is (hopefully) some light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel.
A huge thank you to Abi for taking the time to speak to us!
