Sir John Jones is the most inspirational speaker there is on the educational speaker circuit at the moment. He is funny, passionate and down to earth kind of guy. It was a joy to hear him speak and I would recommend you read his book.
The Porty Learning Festival was a fantastic event focusing on trauma for young people. What a truly inspirational day. Look out for next year's conference.

Leadership Matters book by Andy Buck - a thoroughly useful and interesting book which is accessible and relevant to all those people in a senior leadership position. This book is helping me to think critically about the work we are doing at the moment to take forward the school's vision, values and aims.
