Katie spoke very eloquently to MPs at the Parliamentary drop-in, speaking about how she has gone from a position of very little support at primary level to now excelling at Putney High School GDST where she obtained a clean sweep of A*s and As in her GCSEs. According to her mother, “she has been incredibly well supported at Putney. Justyna Sokolowska is one of the best SENCOS I have ever met – she has really done us proud! We can’t thank the Headmistress Mrs Longstaff and the teachers enough.”
Mrs Frances Lilley is the volunteer education advocate for Nystagmus Network – A member of the Young Vision Alliance which campaigns for visually impaired children. The Young Vision Alliance found that in a survey of 288 parents of children with vision impairment, 47% of the parents had been forced to challenge poor educational provision because their child wasn’t getting the support they needed at school. The campaign is supported by RNIB, Guide Dogs, and Royal National College for the Blind.
