I've worked in education welfare for almost 30 years. My priority has always been on making sure
that colleagues in schools and local authorities know the relevant law and follow the required guidance, but also that they recognise the need for sensitivity in how they are applied.
Schools should be compassionate and stimulating places that model inclusion and cooperation, not a constant battleground.
So I may not always tell you exactly what you think you want to hear. But I will offer you an informed and independent voice that gives you real
practical help in carrying out your statutory duties and seeks to promote creative solutions for those children and young people who most need them.

a waste of time and money.
