September 2018 – News has not been that slow since our last posting but a busy schedule and a busy business has regrettably mean that we have not had time to post. New catalogue has gone to press and will be launched at the TES Show in London in early October. Our new website and branding should also go live at the same time. There have been plenty of new resources lauinched over recent months and we have found others that perhaps are not so new but deserve a wider audience. Take a look at our What’s New page.
December 2017 – The calendar year winds down with Christmas a few days away and then 2018 will be upon us. The launch of our 2018 catalogue at the TES SEN show was a great success and has made for a hugely busy final quarter of the year for us. Our focus on pulling together, or as somebody described it “curating”, a collection of practical resources that teachers, tutors and parents can use in their everyday activities with children with learning difficulties is really working. As a result we are working with many of the very best schools across the country, and internationally, in selecting and supplying resources that work. We want to spread the word as there is still much to do. But that is for 2018. In the meantime happy holidays and all our good wishes for the New Year.
October 2017 – TES SEN Show at Islington was most successful. Thank you to all the delegates who came and saw us. The show/conference/exhibition, whatever you want to call it was full of energy, had some great seminars and is again another must for next year. It was also the launch of our 2018 catalogue which is now being mailed to schools around the country and, in fact, around the world. If you have not had yours yet let us know by clicking here and we will send one out just as soon as we can.
Mid-August 2017 – It is back to school time for us. Making sure we are ready and stocked up for the new year. We are also putting finishing touches to our 2018 catalogue which we will launch at the TES Special Needs Show in London in October. If you are not going to be there drop us a quick email to email@example.com to ensure we have your details and can send one out to you.
18 April 2017 – By next week all will be back for the start of the new term. We have been searching high and low for new and not so new resources that work for you, our customers. There is a new 2018 catalogue just starting to take shape so if you come across something that you think we should stock please do let us know. We have a few more conferences and exhibitions to attend before the summer holidays so we look forward to meting you there.
1 January 2017 – Happy New Year. 2016 was great for us. Catalogue done. New resources done. And lots of new customers. Thank you all. We have a busy year coming up with lots of conferences and exhibitions to attend. We hope to see you there. But please don’t forget. We are here to help so if you have any questions or are uncertain about anything we are selling please get in touch. Telephone 01732 769011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
29 September – Final preparations for next weeks TES SEN Show in Islington just about completed. The new catalogue is at the printers and will be delivered for launch at the show. Do make sure you contact us at email@example.com if you would like a copy. The new school year has also started and resources are being chosen and orders placed. Busy! If you do manage to make it to the London show (Stand 261) or see us at any others do please come and say hello.
21 June 2016 – Nearing the end of summer term and the school year. It has been quite some time since we updated this page. Indicative of how busy we have been! And probably just a bit forgetful. Anyway, looking forward rather than back we are going to be at the National Dyscalculia and Maths Learning Difficulties Conference in London next week with many local and international delegates looking forward to this annual insightful and hugely useful gathering. To this end we emailed our contacts today about some of our concrete maths resources and if the initial response is anything to go by then we seem to have hit a nerve! You can see the email here. While the school year draws to a close many SEN teachers are already putting their minds to next year’s work and are ensuring that resources are in place so they can start from day one with their pupils. They know where to come for them, the resources that is, not the pupils! Have a great summer.
16 February 2016 – Half-term here in the UK and a chance to draw a breath. We are very much looking forward to the British Dyslexia Association International Conference in less than a month’s time. We may even have our new stand ready by then! If any of our international customers are attending and would like to ensure that particular resources are available do get in touch and we will gladly bring them along. In the meantime we have been continuing to attend a number of local and regional special needs events over the past month or so. Mental health seems a very strong topic for this year and we are boosting the number of resources available to cover this. Keep an eye out!
22 January 2016 – The new year has started as it finished. Busy. We have already done our first conference of the year and have many more on the schedule. It is always very satisfying to see the stand at conferences besieged by delegates getting their hands on our books and other resources, searching out something new to help them with their teaching. The flow of very positive feedback is also heartening as is the information about what resources customers are using that we perhaps have not yet discovered. We look forward to seeing many more of you at conferences and exhibitions across the country in the coming months. Do get in touch if you would like to know where we will be or would like to suggest where we should be!
3 November 2015 – First half of term survived and now the Christmas build up starts. A busy few weeks with conferences and exhibitions to attend where we get a chance to show off our wares, meet our customers and talk to practitioners about what works. If you see us please do come and introduce yourself. The new website, while not yet perfect, is proving much easier to manage both from our end and for users. We are seeing growth in our online business and also what seems growing confidence from our customers in using this medium. If you have any feedback we would welcome it.
21 August 2015 – A new website. Much angst, quite a bit of sweat and a real labour but we are now up and running with a more modern, mobile friendly website that is hopefully much easier to navigate. It is not all bells and whistles but it does aim to showcase what resources we sell and make it easier for you, our customers to find what you need to find. Any feedback is much appreciated.
