Governors with an interest in Cultural Engagement are invited to join cultural education broker Kayte Judge on the 28th March 2019 to explore the ways in which the education and cultural sectors can support each other. She will share three case studies of schools who have worked deeply with the cultural sector to meet school improvement needs, provide information about current opportunities to engage with the cultural sector and present a Governor Questionnaire for you to undertake with your school. There will be ample opportunity for discussion.
All interested governors are welcome for Bedford Borough Schools, particularly those whose schools are taking part in the BACE twinning project, including: Wootton Lower School, Mark Rutherford Upper School, Sharnbrook Upper School, Putnoe Primary School, Goldington Green Primary School, Scott Primary School, St John Rigby School, and The Grange.
Kayte works at local arts charity Bedford Creative Arts and founded The Culture Challenge www.culturechallenge.co.uk in response to the local need for schools to see which creative and cultural organisations were available locally to work with schools. She is currently working with BACE, the Bedford Arts and Cultural Education Group, to run a twinning project to ‘twin’ cultural organisations with schools, which includes cash for schools to commission creative and cultural activity. Part of this project involves the aim to ‘cross pollinate’ the governing structures of both cultural organisations and schools, as this provides a powerful way for the sectors to engage and align with one another.
