All topics covered were very informative. Despite being a school administrator for many years there were several nuggets of invaluable information in the subjects covered. The variety of subjects covered was good
"It was lovely to have a mixture of sessions, all with very different content. I found the practical ideas from Mr P and the workshop session inspiring and enjoyed the theory behind a 'value driven curriculum'. It was great to have the spectrum of discussions. Thank you"
"The feedback given…… throughout the day was delivered in a supportive way with things that needed to be implemented straight away. We/I would have benefitted from a SEND review before now. It was a very useful experience." (SENDCo)
"It was very useful to have an external review of all the many different aspects of my role as SENDCo within my setting. This was done in a very supportive way and allowed for reflection and discussion regarding current practice which was very strategic and led to identifying areas where we could develop and move forward." (SENDCo)
"SEND audit was invaluable to identify existing strengths of SEND provision and to focus our action points for improvement going forwards." (Headteacher)
"As a school, we found the SEND review particularly useful to judge our own evaluations are accurate. As a school we really value the opinion of experts in the field to support us in our SEF and then impact on future decisions and on our SIP. I would also like to thank (the Advisor) for her support and challenge during the review process. The manner in which she carried out the review was very well received. We will continuing to seek external validation and support from other areas of curriculum and education in the coming years and then revisit a SEND review in about 4-5 years time as part of our SEF process." (Headteacher).

Both the school staff and the pupil's mother have commented on the positive impact this training has had on him. There have been no further exclusions since he started these sessions.
As he attended more sessions he was more at ease and he engaged more and more every session. This has been a real step forward for him. He has become very articulate about Emotional Logic. he has taken on board what he has been taught and really benefited from it.
Thank you for the support and advice you ahve given the student., their family and the school staff again this year. The Emotional Logic work you did with the student before lockdown was really successful but continuing since COVID 'struck' has certainly made a huge difference to the student's confidence in expressing their opinions and worries, and has also developed our confidence in how we can best support them as staff. We look forward to working with you next term.
