Cambridge Primary Review – update

Cambridge Primary Review – update

1. The report. The final report is entitled Children, their World, their Education: final report and recommendations of the Cambridge Primary Review and is published by Routledge. Its 600+ pages cover in detail the Review’s ten major themes and the report ends with a set of formal conclusions and recommendations for future policy and practice.

2. Launching the debate. The Review, in conjunction with Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the RSA, has organised a public event on Monday 19 October, from 6.00 to 7.45 pm at the RSA, John Adam Street (near Trafalgar Square). Speakers will include Robin Alexander (director of the Cambridge Primary Review), Barry Sheerman (chairman, House of Commons Children, Schools and Families Committee), Mick Brookes (General Secretary, National Association of Head Teachers), Roger Luxton (recently-retired Director of Children’s Services, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham), Mary James (formerly Deputy Director, ESRC Teaching and Learning Research Programme) and Gillian Pugh (Chair, National Children’s Bureau). Brief presentations will be followed by audience discussion. Entry is ticketed but free, and places are limited so it is sensible to book as soon as possible: go to .

3. The regional conferences for professional leaders. Starting on 5 November, there will be a series of regional one-day conferences in different parts of the UK. The conferences are designed for professional leaders in schools, local authorities and teacher training and provide an opportunity to hear about and debate the implications of the final report with the Review team and leading figures from the world of primary education. Delegates receive a copy of the final report.
