At Connaught we believe in exposing our pupils to real-world life experiences from the position of someone who has been there, through visiting speakers. Pupils get to see the insight and perspective of the guest speaker's particular field. One important benefit that is derived from having a guest speaker is the enhancement of the pupils' educational experience. This includes talks from the school nurses, NSPCC, the police, Network rail, Young Carers, visiting authors and charities to name a few. Visiting speakers are planned into the assembly calendar and linked to the weekly PSHE themes.
