Adapting School Premises as Part of a Complex Pedagogical Change Programme

This paper was presented at the European Conference on Educational Research in Porto in 2014. The paper looks at the experience of a UK primary school that participated in the Open Futures programme (2011-2013). Newcastle's evaluation presents the notable success of Open Futures in facilitating rapid whole school cultural and pedagogical change. In this paper Pam Woolner and Lucy Tiplady consider the process of change enacted in one school.
