Aurora is a Religious Studies teacher, SENDco and Senior Leader at Phoenix Academy. She has a degree in Anthropology from SOAS and a Masters in Leadership from the IOE. She is passionate about education as a force for social justice and has worked in a range of inclusion, teacher development and curriculum roles in schools in areas with high levels of deprivation.
Aurora will be speaking today about curriculum, critical theory and conversation and arguing that the right don’t need to dominate the ‘knowledge rich’ discussion. Recently she wrote a blog of the same title that was retweeted by Michael Gove and she wasn’t sure whether to hang her head in shame or smile with joy.
