At Britain Yearly Meeting SIM 2019 Anne Watson posed three questions:
Is there a Quaker view of children and childhood and education?
What is specifically Quaker about our views on children, childhood and education?
What are the imperatives and implications (if any) for action that arise from what is specifically Quaker?

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Anna Gregory, Restorative Co-ordinator for Peacemakers & Paul Parker, Recording Clerk for Britain Yearly Meeting
....Peacemakers walk with schools to a place where peace is a principle embedded in policy and practice. Anna’s keynote session shows us how restorative approaches can be the foundation for building and maintaining this peace. Working restoratively is more than just a set of processes that rely on verbal dialogue. Using vivid stories of peacemaking in schools, Anna shares with us how she embeds Peacemakers' restorative ways of working and being “in the bones” of the people who make schools: staff and pupils, governors and communities.
New: Faith and Experience in Education
‘...a must-read for anyone who is concerned
about the current direction of schooling. It rightly challenges us to ask how education can
authentically nurture care, love, trust, equality, justice and spirituality.’
— Dr Neil Hawkes, Founder, Values-based Education
