Feedback from last years Conference:
I found the day to be extremely useful, as a BoM member it has really helped me to see what issues I need to be thinking about.
Presentations were excellent – really practical and very inspiring
Now I have many great ideas on planning & classroom activities to take with me
Lovely to have opportunity to touch base and share ideas – I’m leaving re-energized. Thank you so much for such a great day, with a perfect balance of presentation and facilitation
This day is a great support for schools
An excellent conference – would love if more of our staff attended
Lots of food for thought – Variety of presentations were informative and insightful – I have definitely come away with ideas today
Should you have any additional queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
