Recently Tracey Berry and Sheila Laing, gave 2 presentations in East Lothian on how schools and services can work with all parents and carers in universal and targeted ways.  Around 80 professionals were inspired and motivated to reflect on their practice by Tracey’s work.  Here is an abbreviated version of the presentation with a few of Tracey’s ideas and how they are being taken forward in East Lothian.

Having lived and worked in West Pilton, Edinburgh for 30 years, I am now really happy to be living in Port Seton and Headteacher of Prestonpans Infant School. What excites me about working in schools is the opportunity to nurture children, families and communities to learn and to celebrate life and learning. Since 2005, I have been inspired by the community of Burmese refugees in Mae Sot, Thailand, who struggle against incredible odds to give the best education possible to their children. I've been honoured to spend time with them each summer and pray the changes in Burma will give freedom to her people.
