Here are some of the testimonies from our visits:
“Thank you so much for the work done in our school on Friday; the Teachers and children were buzzing about it and from my discussions with them they got a lot from it”
“The presentations and workshops were terrific. The presenters themselves were friendly and developed an immediate rapport and relationship with the adults and children. Many thanks to all; it was fabulous!”
We also delivered an Equality Act training session to teachers at a school in Newcastle and received some great feedback by those attending including the Head Teacher who had arranged the session:
“I thought the day was excellent, reassuring, stimulating and gently challenging. It will help us as we move forward with our plan. I'd be happy to recommend you and SRtRC to other schools considering the Equalities agenda. In fact I will do at our next HT meeting”
