I started teaching 30 years ago, 300 metres away and less than 3 months after Stephen Lawrence was murdered. Justice and fairness still not resolved. The level of necessity to be community grounded in education, housing, social care, mental health support and pathways has never been more acute.

never has the need for Youth Services to be funded properly been more profound


No one can really empathise with the reality of Elianne Adam’s family right now, except those that have suffered the same experience and that is sadly now becoming stories of too many shared experiences. As a headteacher, how do you react or even begin to broach this real and traumatic event?


I can’t offer much, except maybe for some schools, this is a way in?
