Dr Andrew Curran Visits Laleham Gap School
On our training day (18 December 2019) our keynote speaker was Dr Andrew Curran. We were delighted that Andrew joined us for the day taking time out of his very busy schedule. Andrew spoke to all of our staff in regard to the best possible chances of learning and what is required to establish such an environment. We were delighted to be joined by specialist teachers from around the county to participate in this superb training.
