Our first day of two days at Baring Primary School, today with the teaching staff, govenors and colleagues from neighbouring schools, tomorrow with the children.
Thank you to Gina Kent (Nursery teacher, Butterfly Class, & ICT lead) and headteacher Diane Brewer, for organising our visit.
Baring is a friendly school, focused on learning, which serves a relatively small area immediately adjacent to the school.
The children and parents of Baring are from many different countries and speak over 25 different languages. This helps to make it a special place where we all value our similarities and differences and learn from each other.
A school already doing some remarkable things. So, where does our visit fit in to the Baring story? Gina explains:
The Head, Diane, and I came across you both at BETT in January 2013 at EXCEL and we were blown away. We felt that your enthusiasm, ingenuity, fun and style would be a great CPD opportunity for our school community which would significantly enhance our learning using ICT.
We ARE a school with lots of strengths, but, as with all schools we always strive to move our learners forward; our teachers are fired up by his creativity and the tools that he has shared will move our curriculum and learning forward. We are so excited about our training that we have invited staff from other Lewisham schools. What a great start to our school year!
