Welcome back to the new school year from PINS

The Pupil Inclusion Network is Scotland’s largest network supporting the voluntary sector and partners in work with learners who are vulnerable or excluded.


Is there a place for love in our professional relationships with children and young people?

Come join PINS network members to explore this key question. Along the way consider love and practice with care-experienced young people, love in early learning and care provision, love and the relationship between teachers and learners. Also then explore love as a human right, love on the school curriculum and indeed love as one of Scotland’s national outcomes. Please register for the event HERE
