Colin Newton and Jacqui Newton spent a morning teaching the keys to inclusion and well-being in County Durham.
Education is a pivotal part of every young person’s development. It serves to show them what they can do, who they are, and where they want to go in life. So, it goes without saying that these are all important things. Yet, there is sometimes a journey to work through between the carer, child, and fostering agency around school engagement. These are some ways that a foster carer can help.
We worked with Tiago over several years at secondary school proving help with person centred planning and Inclusion Facilitation. Great to see how he is contributing to the world!

Implementing person centred planning with disabled adults with learning and mental health difficulties
Service manager of Balance overviews the Person centred Planning day delivered by Jacqui and Colin Newton in Surbiton. The day had a focus on creating ‘the good life’ for disabled adults – the perfect town to deliver this message!
Your school staff can range from teachers to aides to cleaning personnel and those involved in managing the school affairs; all these positions are vital in keeping a school flourishing and providing quality education to students.
Excessive workloads, low morale, lack of support, emotional stress, and high expectations can lead to burnout, which may lead to teachers and staff retiring early. 90% of responding educators consider burnout a severe problem in their field. Some signs your employees may be experiencing burnout are recurrent mood swings, decreasing quality of work, complaints about being stressed, and difficulty in finishing tasks frequently. Let’s understand why wellness matters and how you can support your staff’s well-being.
Every child has the right to education, and this principle becomes even more crucial when we consider that 11% of children in the UK had a disability in 2021/22. These figures highlight the pressing need for inclusive educational settings. Each of these children has ambitions, talents, and a future full of potential. Yet, they often encounter obstacles that limit their access to essential learning tools.
To address this, it’s vital to understand and cater to the varied needs of disabled students. By acknowledging these challenges, educators, community leaders, and policymakers can join forces to ensure every child receives the education they deserve. Such a commitment to inclusivity not only uplifts disabled students but also strengthens the entire educational community by fostering mutual respect and collaboration.
