"I would like to thank everyone involved in taking part in producing the Ordinary Lives paper. It is very powerful. It sets out clearly the expectation that every child, young person and young adult should have an ordinary life. It sets out a clear challenge to all professionals that we should be working to ensure this as well as ensuring that we have high aspirations for all our children, young people and young adults."

Meredith Teasdale, Director of Education, Wolverhampton
