Peter Nelmes, school leader and author of Troubled Hearts, Troubled Minds: Making Sense of the Emotional Dimension of Learning
Stephen Lane gives hope and strength to anyone who feels that schools can sometimes forget to relate to the whole child, or leave some children behind in the drive for academic results. He approaches a fundamental but somewhat neglected area of school life, and shines a light on these vital issues with rigour, sensitivity and reference to evidence-based practice. In doing so he has created a bible for any teacher or school leader whose concern is the wellbeing of their pupils. A particular strength of the book is the way he marries a comprehensive overview of the theory with practical suggestions for day-to-day school life. I would urge all schools to have a copy of Beyond Wiping Noses in their staffroom.
