Lambeth Education & Learning Strategy 2018-2022
We want Lambeth to continue to be at the forefront of change and improvement in education, retaining good relationships between education providers and the Council and building on our collective strengths and achievements. To do this, the strategy has been developed in partnership with schools, other educational establishments and the Council.
It looks ahead to the next few years and outlines our shared ambition for our learners of all ages. It summarises the overarching strategy for education and learning in Lambeth between 2018-2022 with the aim to improve performance for all Lambeth pupils and support adults to develop the skills to succeed in the workplace and fulfil their ambitions.
Please find our Lambeth’s Education and Learning Strategy 2018-22 attached.

Bishop Thomas Grant - Model United Nations 2020
Sponsored by the Lambeth Schools Partnership and Lambeth Youth Council
The Bishop Thomas Grant Model United Nations team is excited to invite pupils from years 7 - 10 to its third annual conference on Saturday 27th June 2020.
What is Model United Nations?
Model United Nations (MUN) is a youth-run simulation of the United Nations Organisation, in which students represent a UN state, becoming delegates who propose and debate solutions to some of the most complex global issues, such as the question of the death penalty or organ trafficking. MUN helps students develop their public speaking and debating skills, as they work with others to create solutions to these problems in agreement with their state’s perspective.
BTG MUN is a conference aimed at both starter delegates, in Years 7-10, who are just beginning their MUN journey, as well as more experienced delegates, for whom our Security Council poses a new challenge. There is also an opportunity for senior pupils with wider MUN experience to apply to act as guest chairs, to help develop the skills of participating delegates with their differing role in MUN.
The BTG MUN conference has a fee of £10 per delegate, however, bursaries are available for schools who may struggle to meet the cost. Fees include all preparatory materials, certificates, and lunch and refreshments on the day.
Please click here for more information about the event, including links available to the application form, chairing application form, the conference programme, delegate guide and committee briefing papers for the conference.
Please also download the Information Newsletter available for download under the Download Bar on the right-hand side of this webpage.
Our applications close on Sunday 29th March 2020.

Why is MUN beneficial?
MUN gives students the opportunity to research and represent minority views within a political situation, which encourages empathy and a want to co-operate to create better solutions to global issues. They are able to look for similarities between their allies and negotiate to cater for the wellbeing for a plethora of states.
In addition, delegates gain skills needed for later life, such as university or employment, within which they can use their newfound confidence to communicate with others, and develop teamwork: researching, questioning and public speaking are just some of the few lessons that come as a result of MUN.
Quotations from BTGMUN participants:
“I was able to meet new people from both within and outside school with similar interests to me”
“MUN helped to widen my knowledge of modern and historical politics, as well as country policies”
“I have learnt how to research effectively so that I can argue from a perspective completely different to my own”
“MUN has changed my life – I have built the confidence to public speak and communicate comprehensively with others in a debate situation, which has then reflected in both my personal and school life so that I can fully articulate my own opinions. Furthermore, my awareness of complex topics has increased, as I am now able to analyse and question the details of international relations, and their continuous impact on our governments and their decisions. I am now looking to read History and Politics at university as a result of all I have gained from MUN, and hope to continue developing friendships with those who are equally as passionate about politics as I have become”
We look forward to welcoming you to BTGMUN 2020 on Saturday 27th June 2020!

Aim High Primary 2020
At the beginning of February, the Lambeth Schools Partnership once again ran Aim High Primary at Stockwell Primary School, marking the fourth Aim High week of events since September 2018. Aim High, which is a strand of the LSP’s Raising the Game initiative, aims to raise aspirations through introducing pupils to inspirational and highly successful Black individuals from a range of professional and academic backgrounds.
Since the beginning of the Raising the Game initiative, Aim High has welcomed more than 2000 Black Caribbean pupil attendees who have been inspired by around just under 200 volunteer Black speakers from a range of academic and professional backgrounds.
This month, the 15 Aim High sessions over the course of the week saw more than 650 pupils from years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 from 23 Lambeth primary schools hear from and interact with the inspirational speakers who shared their own path to success in their chosen profession. These motivational speakers included tech experts from the Black Googlers Network, representatives from the African Caribbean Medical Mentors Association (ACMM), educators, lawyers, economists, storytellers, a vet, a member of Mensa, a police officer, an actress, a child psychologist, a fashion designer, a journalist, political members Cllr Winifred and Cllr Brathwaite, and Lambeth’s Director of Children’s Social Care Alex Kubeyinje (amongst many others).
In each session, pupils had the opportunity to hear from four or five speakers, where they were able to find out about these individuals’ personal, academic and professional journeys and were encouraged to be curious and inquisitive. Abigail Morakinyo, a Senior Nurse and one of the speakers, reflected that ‘the pupils were eager to learn as demonstrated by the quantity and quality of the questions asked.’ Highlights from the week included Samantha Williams’ ‘multicultural book carnival’ which featured stories with all-BAME protagonists, a performance from storyteller Alim Kamara and the ACMM’s ‘locate the vital organs’ activity.
Feedback from pupils, teaching staff and speakers alike was extremely positive. Ashley Knowles, Deputy Head of Dunraven Primary School called the events ‘a brilliant starting point for pupils to explore and discuss future careers.’
Pupils praised the events as ‘inspiring’, ‘interesting’ and ‘exciting’ and many said they felt they had ‘learned a lot’ and ‘made new friends’. One of the year 3 pupils commented: ‘I liked that we focused on Black speakers’, with another year 5 pupil saying ‘today’s session boosted my confidence and made me think about what I’d like to do when I’m older.’ One of the younger pupils from year 2 wrote in their feedback: ‘I learned I can do anything I dream’, adding that they would like to be an astronomer when they’re older. Other desired careers named by the pupils included: barrister, palaeontologist, doctor, actor and artist (amongst many others).
Some speakers had already partaken in previous Aim High events, and the vast majority expressed how keen they were on repeating the experience, with Helen Hosein, an Enterprise Engineer for Google commenting: ‘I was really impressed, and it was a privilege to be involved.’ Alex Kubeyinje, Director of Children’s Social Care, praised the Aim High initiative saying: ‘I wish I had something like this when I was in school as it is a fantastic opportunity’.
Overall, the week was a huge success and we look forward to the next set of Aim High events later this year. We will soon be uploading a pupil feedback video from Aim High Primary to the LSP website, so watch this space!
*Raising the Game: Achievement of Black Caribbean Pupils in Lambeth is a two-year initiative which focuses on closing the attainment gap between Black Caribbean pupils and their peers, as well as reducing disproportionate exclusion levels for this group. Raising the Game encompasses a range of initiatives including diversifying our curriculum to better reflect the borough’s (and indeed London’s) community, head teacher coaching, unconscious bias training for heads and chairs of governors, early years parental engagement activities as well as other Aim High events in future.
