Grannies-to-be. SEN provision in schools. Neo-classical painter Angelica Kauffman reimagined.
We hear from our four grannies-to-be about their anxieties ahead of the birth. Plus the neo-classical painter Angelica Kauffman reimagined and provision for SEN children.
Our four grannies- to-be, Rubina from Manchester, Erika from Bedfordshire, Angie from Nottingham and Rosemary from East Staffordshire talk about their anxieties around the birth of their grandchild.
Angelica Kauffman was one of the founding members of the Royal Academy, which celebrates its 250th Birthday next week. Yet she’s not included in the famous paintings of those founders. So who was she? We discuss the life and impact of the neo-classical painter.
A new Ofsted report claims that thousands of children are missing out on support for diagnosed special educational needs in England, and that provision for pupils with special educational needs (SEN) was too inconsistent. Teachers have urged Ofsted to recognise how a lack of funding is contributing to these issues. So, how do head teachers decide where to spend their money, especially when they have to make cuts? Is SEN a priority?
Earlier this year, Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum, daughter of Dubai’s ruler, left her country and set sail for India with her friend Tiina Jauhiainen., They planned to fly to America for a new life.
