I had pretty much retired from education welfare work before the current closures, but I have decided to continue for the time being. I will give you accurate independent advice about attendance and absence which is based on actual Guidance wherever possible. (My main advice has always been to check the Regulations and Guidance before you do anything - it still is!)


You can find information on the present arrangements for SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AND ABSENCE here. LAST UPDATED 3RD JUNE. As things develop, there may be new training packages available later in order to promote best practice. Or CONTACT ME at any time. Enquiries from parents or schools are welcome. 


RE-THINKING CHRISTIANITY This website now also reflects my other main interest: Can Christianity and its central figure mean anything to those who are not convinced that conventional ideas of 'God' and religion take us where we need to go as modern, thoughtful human beings?


On the RESOURCES page you will find a PowerPoint (with audio) on 'Who wrote the Bible'? plus a set of free discussion notes on the classic book from the 1960s, ''Honest to God' and my own studies on the Psalms from 2011, 'Walking without God'. These are all free.


Friendly FEEDBACK is always very welcome. Please let me know if you have found my ideas interesting and helpful.
