The ‘Celebration of Education’ event, which takes place between June 14 and 18, is organised by the Flying High Partnership and has sessions for pupils and parents as well as an array of development workshops for all staff who support schools – from site managers to teaching staff.

It features participation by world class children’s authors including Michael Rosen, Lisa Thompson, and Katherine Rundell as well as a host of inspirational speakers for parents and staff – including Steve Radcliffe, who will provide an introduction to his book, Future- Engage-Deliver.

Elaine Fearn, training and development coordinator at the Flying High Partnership, said: “We are seeing lots of schools signing up for the event now and there is a joyful anticipation of the week’s programme.”
