About me

I was a full-time teacher at Blackfen School for Girls in Bexley. Before that I was the National Subject Lead for Citizenship for the Association for Citizenship Teaching, and before that I led the Citizenship programme at Deptford Green School, where we pioneered the development of the subject. I’m currently living in Kathmandu, Nepal, where I’m involved in education, journalism and film-making.

    Dear Mr Pattisson,
    I trust you are OK with me blogging about your presentation at the SSAT Event last week? It was very inspiring.

        I’m guessing it’s an app on the mac. Videos look great. I feel I have to make one now! It’s a shame blacken is all girls. Otherwise I would have definitely applied!

    dear pattision
    hello sir, I have just read your article in the guardian about impact of unofficial blockade imosed by indian government. I read your article but its biased. Its in favour of india behind the truth. India has cut our daily supplies, not by the protesters. We are facing the blockade after we drafted our constitution not during the protest. So before writing please do some more research to find the truth. Your words can be source of power to us. If you mislead about us the world will get wrong information about what is happening in our country.
    Thank you.
    Wit regards nabin kc
