Waldon Day

We had a highly successful ‘Waldon Day’ at Arbour Vale School.

Carol Mannion, a Waldon practitioner and contributing author of ‘‘Every Child Can Learn’, came to share her expertise and facilitated the sessions. She shared her knowledge and has really helped to guide and develop our Waldon practise.

Students and their teachers from EYFS, Primary, Secondary and Post 16 departments took part in the Waldon Approach workshops. The students were working on a variety of activities, for example,  working towards achieving PHLO targets, developing body coordination and using cutlery to help them eat more independently.

Teachers delivered sessions with the support of Carol Mannion and student participation was excellent!!
