Research interests

I am a researcher and writer on education policy with particular interest in the discourse of wellbeing in UK schools and the impact of disadvantage and poverty on young peoples life experiences.I generally approach my work through the frame of critical discourse analysis.  My current research is focused on a) UK education policy and devolution across the UK with specific emphasis on social and emotional learning and b) the development of Anchor initiatives as an emerging form of localised commnunity development. Further to this I am also engaged in the Just GM project and a localised Pupil Voice network in Manchester schools. My doctoral thesis was - The new labour discourse of social and emotional learning across schools in England and Wales as a univeral intervention; a critical discouse analysis
