Education charity learns from town school
SKILLS and knowledge were shared between teachers when a delegation from Chile visited Clevedon School.
The visitors were representatives of the Chilean educational charity, Sumate, which works with some of the poorest children who have been neglected by the state and would otherwise find themselves without formal schooling.
The visit on November 21 was held to allow them to learn about classroom practices, school organisation and the leadership at Clevedon School, in the hope of then improving practices in Sumate’s four Santiago schools.
It was organised by UK educational organisation, Independent Thinking, which has worked with Clevedon School for a number of years and was set up by educational writer Ian Gilbert, who until recently, was based in Santiago.
Independent Thinking works with schools across the country to highlight, support and share world-class practice in UK education.
