  • 'I just want to say how excellent Gareth's EHC annual review was this morning. I have been to many reviews at different schools and I must say I was really impressed with the preparation to ensure all aspects of his plan were addressed and everyone's view included. It was very child focussed and I have come away feeling confident in the school's ability to meet Gareth's needs.  The All About Me work is really valuable, this is something Children's Services in Warwick complete with Children in Care and I'm pleased to see it used in other contexts'.
