What our schools say
Don’t just take our word for it
This has been a fantastic experience. The framework allowed us to strip back everything we had thought about the learning environment, and made us think what our main goals and intent were. From there, we built up a plan to achieve this and what we wanted the children to gain from the experience.
Overall my way of teaching has adapted and I now think of my learning space as different zones that allow learning to happen in various ways
The PLS in Practice Design Framework has allowed teachers to shine at different times and it increases opportunities for more passion lead projects with teachers. By working collaboratively, we can all learn from one another.
The process has enabled us to gather systems, work collaboratively and think about how to move strategically ahead with everyone’s perspectives, buy in and ownership – it helped to make things more real and gives us a bit more power in decision making
The process has allowed us to recognise and acknowledge the journey we’ve been on by pulling together different aspects of shifts we were making in pedagogy and curriculum experience. We then used it to visualise and drive our next steps and where we wanted to go moving forward into our new school build
Our Kura-School has embraced the PLS framework in order to prepare for transitioning to our new school later this year. The process has allowed for our staff to authentically share their ideas about their current learning challenges and how might we plan for next steps/solutions. I would strongly encourage any school undertaking a new build to review and participate in the PLS process. .
The Planning Learning Spaces in Practice Design Framework has enabled us to think outside the box, take risks and try new things. It has given me the confidence to know that nothing I was doing, was wrong.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Bhavini and Terry. They have taken the time to listen to the school’s needs through conversations with governors, staff and the ever-important student voice.
Their drive to create innovative and exciting learning spaces for all is evident, from conception through the design process.
We are very excited to continue this journey with them to develop the school learning spaces further.’
