Working in collaboration with the School of Education and Space Unlimited, the staff and pupils involved will showcase and discuss the challenges they faced in this transformative process. The event will highlight the innovative enquiry–led process which was initially funded through the Scottish government’s attainment challenge and the longer-term benefits of working with pupils to bring about change.
