With a rapidly increasing population, London is facing a crisis around the provision of school places. London Councils’ recent report suggested the capital is set to have a secondary place shortfall of 35,000 school places by 2020. Pre-election figures compiled by Labour suggested that more than 60,000 London children could miss out on a primary school place in three years’ time simply because of a lack of provision.
This NLA half-day conference looked at innovation across London’s schools and examined how primary and secondary schools are working to provide much needed additional places across the capital. How are schools reusing and re-appropriating their existing estates to make more space for learning? What innovative funding models are being employed in a continued atmosphere of budget cuts, and what are the new ways of thinking about sharing education spaces in the capital for greater community benefit?
