Bishop Alan in conversation with Lord Carlile
Posted on 3rd December, 2015
CHURCH school head teachers and governors were invited to listen to the Rt Revd Alan Wilson, Chair of the Diocesan Board of Education in conversation with Lord Carlile.
Lord Carlile, in his role as overseer of terrorism legislation, led the drafting of the 2011 ‘Prevent’ strategy, which gave rise to the ‘British values’ agenda. The impact this agenda will have on schools was addressed during the meeting, which was part of the RIGHT Programme, the Diocese of Oxford’s development network for Chairs of Governors of our Church Schools. The programme offers members the chance to meet together to discuss and share good practice (through Sharing Events) while also hearing from and debating with key thinkers and leaders of today’s educational landscape (through Thinking Events).
