  • What kind of creativity? Creative-mindedness

  • What kind of ‘assessment’? For what purpose?

  • Dispositions and habits, not skills

  • Selecting the dispositions: validity + utility

  • Allowing for progression: two layers

  • Development: ‘strength’, ‘breadth’ and ‘depth’

What do we hope to achieve

What do we hope to achieve?

  • Engage the broader research, policy and practice communities in further dialogue

  • “We are being beaten with a rather large stick, with a Local Authority undergoing great change…With the new Ofsted [inspection] Framework looming and our old friend the 11+ [exams] ever present, it makes this project all the more vital in making staff reflect on how are we nurturing creativity and giving pupils access to their own armory of tools to ensure a love for learning and progress.” [Headteacher, South East England]
