    Anna Batemen interviews Estelle Morris, former Secretary of State for Education and member of the House of Lords. Estelle is currently working at the Institute of Effective Education and is Chair and advisor for the Birmingham Education Partnership.

    Estelle shares her vision for ensuring wellbeing is at the heart of every school’s vision alongside a good standard of education.
