Coaching and consultancy for primary school leaders to create sustainable improvement in your school.
I work with Headteachers, curriculum leaders, and governors to increase efficiency and effectiveness, including curriculum leadership, governor monitoring, and headteachers annual appraisal alongside general school improvement, supporting schools to improve and approach their next inspections with confidence.
After a successful career in primary education, including almost 20 years headship, over 5 years working within LA school improvement, and 6 years as an Ofsted inspector I’m now self-employed and focusing on the things I really enjoy: working in partnership with individual schools to create sustainable improvement. I also continue as an Ofsted inspector, which is just a different side to school improvement.
