My colleague Nicola Palmer our Information Policy Access Officer sent me this e-mail after her visit to Ireland Wood Primary School and Lawnswood School...

"Hi Chris , Hope you are well. Just thought I'd send you a quick email to let you know about our visit to Ireland Wood Primary School and Lawnswood School. It is very unusual for our section to visit schools - so its always a bit of an outing! We went to have a look at their pupil records as we are developing further records management guidance for schools. Ian, the Head teacher at Ireland Wood, and all his staff were so very welcoming and made us feel right at home. They answered all our questions and gave us a really good starting point for our development work. We also visited Sara Hart and Sue Cooper at Lawnswood who again made us very welcome and answered all our questions - obvious or otherwise! We really enjoy going into our schools, especially when we have such a good experience. Many thanks to Ireland Wood Primary School and Lawnswood School for their time. Best wishes Nicola."

It's great to get good feedback about colleagues visits to schools. Everyone should get out to see the golden threads that connect everything we do to a child, a young person and a school and to see what we are doing and why.
