Principal, Laurie Cornwell speaks at TES SEN Show

Laurie Cornwell, Executive Principal Young People’s Academy and The Skills Hub spoke about ‘implementing reflective and restorative practices within education’ at TES SEN Show London in October. The SEN show is the largest, most-established special educational needs show in the UK, Laurie had a room full of people who had opted into the seminar from both mainstream and special schools.

The show provides the ideal environment for SEN professionals at all levels of education to benefit from direct access to professional development opportunities and the latest products, resources and services available to the sector.

One of the delegates at the conference said “I am really happy to see this practice being adopted and will be taking away several ideas and examples of how to embed this into my school.”

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of OHC&AT will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.   We are looking forward to a bright future as part of the OHC&AT family.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
