Nursery LSA Primary School

This course today has been fantastic, very useful to my work. I have worked for DMBC & Trust for 21 Years and have attended lots of M&H courses. This is the best”

“Increased confidence and understanding of handling skills and safety with additional support given relevant to the needs of our school”.

The course touched upon things beyond what I had expected. What was relevant was helpful, the other content will be hugely beneficial in the future. I found it gave me an insight into preserving the dignity of a child, not just the ability to look after yourself. This is a course I hope will stay with me throughout any school experience.
