I found this to be a really useful day. Hearing from some of the groups/partners in addressing attainment helps to 'legitimize' them and allows me to be confident in their credibility. I would like to thank the organisers for offering complimentary places to students. This conference has been and will be very valuable tome and I would not have been able to attend without that generosity. Keeping abreast of the current thinking is so important in a difficult area like education.
