The Guardian – Sheila Mulvenney

“In almost every class, there will also be those who find learning a challenge – the children who perhaps cause teachers to wake in the night, or to feel that they are having to manage certain behaviours beyond their usual areas of expertise.

There will be those, too, who are not known to any service but come to school every day having faced significant hardships.”(more)
