Richard Dunne

dunneRichard Dunne is head teacher of Ashley CofE Primary School in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, an Ofsted graded ‘Outstanding School’. The school has over 500 children aged 4-11 and it teaches through enquiries of learning, big questions that provide the focus for each half-term’s learning. The children play a lead role in running the school’s sustainability projects from monitoring the school’s energy to measuring water and food waste every lunchtime to growing organic fruit and veg in the school grounds and looking after the bees. More recently, Richard has established a set of Harmony principles inspired by the Prince of Wales’s book ‘Harmony, a new way of looking at the world’ that references how principles of Nature can guide all learning. This work is now being shared widely in schools and teacher training colleges in the UK and around the world.
