Good In Service Shock Horror

On Friday morning we had a two hour session in the school hall on Child Protection.  As you can imagine, the prospect of this did not exactly fill me with glee.  Child Protection is, of course, important, but I wasn't so sure that spending two hours being lectured about it was really going to make any difference to my practice.

I was wrong.

Anne Darling delivered a moving and informative session which gave us a clear understanding of the potentially life saving role we have to play as teachers of abused children, and highlighted the way that procedures have changed for the better over the last few years.  The material could have been dry and depressing, but Anne's personal involvement and passion brought it alive.

Brilliant stuff - thanks Anne.
