I can also offer advice and support for school leadership in relation to policies and procedures to help support schools in becoming attachment and trauma aware and ultimately attachment and trauma friendly.

You share such crucial knowledge for all staff in our schools but it’s your truly real life experiences and honest passion and commitment for every child that makes you so inspirational. I’ve already heard people saying it’s been one of the best training days.

Official feedback received from Leicestershire talk – November 2018:

Julie Chilton, Education Liaison Officer, Walsall Virtual School – 27.06.18

“The staff are still buzzing about the training they had this morning.  The training was engaging, powerful, relevant and resonated with everyone.  In fact we had to extend the time as staff wanted to hear more.  Stuart’s delivery was excellent.  The approaches Stuart shares are all underpinned by research and supplemented by amusing personal anecdotes”. Mangal Singh (Executive Headteacher, Wilkes Green Infant School and Wilkes Green Junior School) – 22.06.18

“Just wanted to say thanks for providing the most thought-provoking, informative, useful and inspiring training I have ever had. I am determined to take some aspects straight into my classroom practice.”Dan Beier (Teacher – Princethorpe Junior School, Birmingham)- 07.06.18

“I just wanted to email to let you know the lecture was definitely an eye opener! When I thought about the children I have met along my ITT course, I have been able to pin point their trauma and attachment issues, which I did not realise before.

The way you delivered the content was fantastic. You had me engaged all the way through and I definitely recommend you to keep delivering these lectures. You were honest about your opinion which I loved. I can honestly say the lecture was moving. You did an outstanding job- keep going!”
