“Very informative. Serena was approachable and knowledgeable. She also had an understanding of what it is like daily in the classroom. Lots of information given and advice when asked. Great to see what other schools do. It would have been useful if we had more time to share what other schools do for evidence etc as it’s best way sometimes to develop ideas etc!” Clare Roberts – Teacher – Stechford
