A Perfect Storm – Children’s Mental Health
 
Developing the emotional intelligence of our children should be a key component in our education system. Unfortunately, with the myriad of changes imposed on education, the opposite is happening. If something is not done soon, we are on course to academically deskill our children, whilst further damaging their mental health. A perfect storm.

The stiff upper lip
 
The stiff upper lip – it’s a phrase synonymous with Britishness isn’t it? Like warm beer, strawberries and cream it is part of our British identity. And sometimes it’s useful.

When you are at the top of your game who do you turn to?
