SINCE 9/11 are delighted to welcome on board our newest trustee, REAch2 founder and Chief Executive, Sir Steve Lancashire.
Sir Steve has been involved in primary education for thirty years. He is a National Leader of Education and has been a lead adviser for the department for Education, taking the lead in supporting schools to move from ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’.
Through REAch2, one of the largest and most successful primary academy trusts in the country, Sir Steve seeks to establish a family of schools that share his passion and drive to secure the best possible outcomes for primary aged children and to ensure that primary education has a strong national voice. Ensuring there is enough capacity in the education system to enhance existing good schools and tackling the issues facing failing schools is at the heart of Sir Steve’s vision, ensuring that all young people have access to an exceptional education.
Sir Steve was Knighted for services to education in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list in 2016.
Speaking on the move, Liam Duffy, Charity Director at SINCE 9/11 said:
“This is a tremendous step forward for the organisation, as we seek to put SINCE 9/11 on the map as the leading charity supporting the education sector in responding to the evolving threat of extremism and terrorism. Sir Steve’s experience, ingenuity and infectious passion for education will prove invaluable to every aspect of our work.”
We would like to thank Sir Steve for the commitment he has made with the charity, and together with the talents of our existing trustees and supporters we are looking forward to the added expertise Sir Steve will bring in driving SINCE 9/11 forward; particularly with the development of our Primary Education Programme and expansion of existing resources.
By the use of our materials and programmes, we aim to make a difference through education by teaching about 9/11 and how terrorism affects us today, ensuring that future atrocities are prevented, and that the victims of terrorism are never forgotten.
