The Fascination of Enquiry: Focus Day

The day is about: "honing education from the principles of relationship, encounter, enquiry, exchange and expression": principles which Sightlines Initiative and settings in its network are working on and towards. Informed by close encounters with the preschools of Reggio Emilia, and with colleagues from the Reggio International Network.

The day will include a mix of presentations and discussions;to mark, question and progress our pedagogy.


  • What does it mean to say ‘inspired by Reggio’? - Examining pedagogical development grounded in Sightlines’ and Reggio’s principles: Robin Duckett; (including ‘Languages of Evaluation – evaluating practice from our principles’, Peter Moss)
  • Researches: focussing on democracy – Sightlines Network West Midlands; 'the interplay of expressive languages' – Sightlines Network London
  • Strategies for documenting and presenting the messages of shared learning (viewing and examining aspects of ‘The Many Faces of the Assembly’ (Reggio Children)

Whether you're already involved in our network or want to find out more the day is for you. We welcome you to attend from independent and statutory early childhood and primary settings.

On the previous day, in nearby Telford, we are holding An Encounter with Madeley Nursery School . This can make an ideal two-day professional development event.
