Efficiency vs Deficiency: in pursuit of sustainable schooling


The session is designed to help those responsible for creating a longer term sustainable plan. It will distil the hard lessons learned obtaining sustainability across a wide range of primary schools working in collaboration in one locality. It will examine what is practically possible within the primary phase, and propose a framework for decision making and cost prioritisation that helps create a deliverable and realistic plan. It will explore the contentious possibility that some short-term efficiencies lead to longer-term deficiencies, and discuss how leaders might manage the risk that this poses.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
