As the end of term approaches…

As many schools reach the end of term today we would like to wish all readers – teachers and non-teachers alike – a safe and happy summer. We’ll be keeping the news and discussion coming as best we can over the summer (although maybe  not starting quite so early in the morning!) so please continue to visit, sign up for our newsletter if you haven’t already and share your thoughts and contributions on Twitter…
