"The impact on families is demonstrated in more shared smiles and increased confidence to communicate with us at school, as well as a willingness to support their children.  closest to our hearts are the significant barriers that many parents have begun to de-construct themselves, bringing their families closer to success in education by stepping over the school threshold willingly and confidently, with a smile and greeting."

St. Martin's school, Salisbury
