Alison Peacock will talk about 'Learning without Limits' as an alternative school improvement agenda that seeks to be genuinely inclusive.  She will draw upon her experience as a teacher and headteacher throughout a career dedicated to reducing deterministic notions of so-called 'ability'.  Alison will illustrate her talk with video clips and stories of practice. She will also draw links between her research and her current role, as she sets about establishing a new professional body, the Chartered College of Teaching.
