The School of Education are pleased to welcome Professor Becky Allen and Professor Peter Clough who have recently joined our research and enterprise team.
The places of ‘love, care and intimacy’ should fill a gap in the English early years system, according to the University of Brighton’s Dr Jools Page.
In an article published in the TES magazine (formerly Times Educational Supplement, subscription required), Dr Page, Senior Early Years Lecturer in the School of Education, says early years professionals should show children in their care that “regardless of their circumstances, everyone born into this world is worthy of being loved just for who they are – not because of something they have to do in order to earn that”.
Contact between caregivers and children is a sensitive issue, but Dr Page, who formerly worked as a nanny, day care centre manager and senior policy advisor for under-threes at a local authority prior to taking up an academic career, argues that ‘professional love’ can be hugely beneficial to babies and young children.

The School of Education’s Pippa Totraku is sewing hearts for sick patients in Intensive Care – and now she’s making scrubs too.
Having seen the call for more personal protective equipment, Pippa (Principal Lecturer Lead for Planning and Admissions), who knits and sews for a hobby, sought out a way to help and found Facebook group, ‘For the love of scrubs’.
Pippa spotted a request for crafters to make hearts for coronavirus patients who are critically ill in Intensive Care Units. With access limited for close relatives, the idea is for one heart to stay with the patient and another to be sent to a relative, so that they can both share something physical.
Pippa said: “It’s a very small and personal contribution but the amazing work done by the group was something I had to be a part of.” Read More

The School of Education held its first Student Voice Week in December.
The event was designed in consultation with students with the aim of gaining a deeper understanding of how School of Education students understand the term ‘student voice’ and their experiences of it during their study-lives.
Dr Richard Wallis, Deputy Head of the School of Education, shared the key objective of the project stating that is was to “find out from our student body, what they understand student voice to mean and how it has been most effectively experienced during the course of their study”.
Throughout the week students could visit our stands to chat with student voice ambassadors, add to the ‘thoughts board’, complete a survey and eat cakes and pastries! Over the course of the week the ambassadors were visited by around 150 students. Read More
