Pullupachair (parents) Film 1 - Barriers to thriving in mainstream school

Martin-Denham, Sarah (2023) Pullupachair (parents) Film 1 - Barriers to thriving in mainstream school. [Video]

Item Type: Video


Eight parents of children from two alternative provision schools took part in #pullupachair. Over ten days and through creative arts approaches the parents reflected on and explored their experiences of supporting their child up to and following school exclusion. Eight films were co-created, scripted and performed by them with support and guidance from Sarah and Ruth a Theatre Director. We hope that the films will be used to support thinking at a local and national level to change the school system at the roots.
