Hope springs eternal - and makes the biggest difference

“I’m often asked what skills and qualities we look for in our workforce. Standard, politically correct answers come to mind around excellent communication skills and relevant qualifications, and of course these are important, but I have distilled the desirable qualities down to one fundamental character trait that is essential: the ability to hope.

Recommend us to another school...

As schools put together their plans for next year and consider how to help the children and families that need extra support, we get lots of enquiries about our Family Support Service, so we thought it would be useful to describe how it works and how it can help your school. Think of the most difficult to reach family in your school…

Are your students ready for secondary school?

There can be no doubt that one of the major milestones in a child’s life is the transition from primary to secondary school. For children from stable backgrounds it is often the first major change in their lives that they can remember. For children from less stable backgrounds it can add upheaval to an already stressful life, sometimes even being the trigger for marked changes in behaviour.

In praise of clinical supervision

The sessions last for an hour and it is opportunity to unwrap and explore feelings that may otherwise be repressed.
