Message from Steve Claypoole following the last session

I found this a really positive meeting and am already enjoying this way of working. The group are really strong and were incredibly supportive to the adoptive parent who attended for the first time.
I think with a mixture of focused sessions combined general discussions this will be really positive over the school year for all.
