Principal speaks at TES SEN Show London

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.”

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
