17 Refresher Training Feedback »“I thought that the refresher day was invaluable. Got a lot out of it as it was quite some time ago that I did the training.” »“ The best bit I got from the refresher day was 'extracting good ideas from parents.' Bridget showed us how to ask parents what they were seeing in the clips and write them down as concepts or instructions that they could look back on and understand what they had learned.” »“It focused on areas we felt we needed support in e.g. role play and vignettes”

I went into the meeting not knowing what I would gain, I came out with more knowledge, understanding and confidence to deliver the course more effectively. Next week’s session is going to be so much better as we have the understanding! I look forward to more inspiring meetings.” Zoë »“We need more of these meetings in the future.” Claire

22 Education Policy - Estyn Key Question 3.3. »Inspectors should evaluate how strategically the school works with its partners to improve pupils’ standards and wellbeing. »The main focus in this quality indicator should be on the impact of strategic partnerships on pupils’ standards and wellbeing and not just on the number and range of partners or the nature and quality of the partnership arrangements. »Partners include Parents / carers
