Andrew Moffat, CEO of the No Outsiders programme, visited Prae Wood and led sessions to different classes throughout school on Thursday 10th November. Many of our school governors joined us for the day too. The No Outsiders programme examines the premise that no-one is the same, but we are all equal and all welcome and delivers teaching designed to equip children for life in modern Britain, whilst strengthening communities.
'Andrew Moffat's lessons were really inspiring
and it was a joy to watch the children responding
so positively and enthusiastically' -Governor
Andrew was impressed with just how articulate our children are, their repertoire of emotional vocabulary as well as our children's listening skills. Through the use of some beautiful picture books, Andrew reinforced our inclusive ethos and how there are 'No Outsiders' at our school; everyone is welcome and everyone is valued. The classes that did not have a session with Andrew have since had the session led by their class teacher.
