2017 - 18 World of Work and Technology

2018 - 19 Creating Our Future

The E1 Schools’ theme for 2018-2019 is ‘Creating our Future’.

It’s a broad theme for each school to interpret and then collectively celebrate in July 2019.

It continues last year’s theme of ‘World of Work and Technology’ extending to exploring ‘local and global environment, ethics and sustainability issues’ and in  ‘developing creative talents and skills for manufacturing through the creative arts.’  We believe that communities need the arts as part of culture as much as the future requires qualifications in STEM.

E1 Schools make it a collective responsibility to ensure pupils have a range of opportunities to explore the theme of ‘Creating our Future’ and to develop attitudes and characteristics which will enable them to access future opportunities. 

Our Pupil Parliament, is a vehicle for this, as is each of our schools’ enriched curriculum offer. Each school will identify three themes to prioritise pupil and school led actions which can be shared and celebrated across the community of E1Schools’ Partnership.

We are also developing our curricula to support this focus including embedding elements of PSHE and SMSC.
