AP symposium - read all about it!
Our Early Intervention symposium made headlines last week.....
The Sheffield Star kick-started its Whirlow campaign with an in-depth article on the Early Intervention symposium that we hosted recently up at the Farm. There's clearly a great deal of interest in exclusions - they devoted 2 entire pages to the event - unsurprising given Sheffield's position in the various education league tables. Interestingly, the Council acknowledge that the pressures facing other services - social care for example - might play a significant role in forming the behaviours that result in children being excluded. We made that very point at the symposium - that this is more than just an education issue, and a more joined-up, long term approach is needed.
