Is this not how all Primary Schools should be, allowing our children the freedom to learn in their own way?

A traditional Victorian school in West Thornton is being transformed into a beacon of collaborative learning by its visionary leadership team. Inspired by Google’s offices and other forward-thinking open plan workspaces designed to be enjoyed rather than endured, headteacher Di Pumphrey and her deputy Karen Dugan have designed a hugely creative learning environment that is truly inspirational. “Teachers are hardwired to be at the front of the class,” she continues. “You can’t do that when there is no ‘front’. This space forces you to change your behaviour, it’s about the adult being supportive, not the font of all knowledge. Everyone is learning in this space and that makes it ok to not know, ‘how do we find out’ is where the learning happens.”
