Jeremy hunt raised issue of
Culture as a target being negative. He promoted the idea of culture helps learners thrive not just survive..

Tony Lyng passion was great what a inspiring head !! Culture as search for social status and social justice.

Estelle Morris spoke with her usual passion and healthy dose of commonsense. The thought that culture makes sense.

Access to culture in the curriculum is not teaching promoting a creative curriculum
