Political impartiality for school leaders during a general election

Attend this informative session to clarify your understanding around what schools can and should do during the election period

About this event

School Leaders have a responsibility for a wide range of  priorities, policies and areas in their schools.  Balancing the statutory duty to remain impartial whilst supporting British Values and developing students’ political literacy in the run up to a general election can become more complex. This is particularly so as interest in the news, political campaigning and the election draws nearer.  

Presenters Professor Lee Jerome from Middlesex University and ACT’s Head of Education, Zoe Baker have undertaken a wide range  of work on how to remain impartial when teaching political issues.  Join this webinar to work with school and subject leaders and explore the principles of impartiality and how to maintian this across your school and curriculum. Explore scenarios, establish what good practice looks like, and consider a model school policy. Above all, if you are looking for advice and support on how to navigate impartiality whilst working within curriculum requirements and the legal framework, then this session is for you.

Who is it for?

  • School leaders and Governors
  • Personal Development leaders
  • Citizenship subject leaders
  • Curriculum leaders.
