Feedback collected from recent INSET

  • Very informative and Anne was very knowledgeable.

  • Very interesting. Sounds like some good opportunities are available (visiting schools in other places). Good to have other focuses to go alongside topics and bringing in the SDG's.

  • This was very interesting and a very 'real' way to open windows for our children.

  • It was good to get some in-dept information about why have links to the UN and how things in the curriculum can be adapted to include these values.
