Could you tell me a bit about yourself and what motivates you?

I am really enthused by the work that I do with school leaders on a 1:1 or group basis. It is a huge privilege to work with educators  to capture what is working well and also determining what needs improving and how.

What is your educational experience?

I qualified as a teacher 29 years ago! Since then I have been a subject leader in Maths, Science, RE and PE. I then became a senior leader, a Head teacher of a multicultural primary school, a Local Leader in Education and an RE Inspector. I have taught across EYFS, KS1 and KS2. I have coached and mentored teaching assistants, NQTs, teachers and head teachers in a wide range of settings.

What is your educational specialism?

I  am passionate about the Mission Statement of Schools: their vision and values and how they review them and  communicate these with their stakeholders.I am particularly interested in assisting leaders in schools evaluate and improve their approaches and strategies in order to make their schools more effective. I am very keen to work with faith schools and schools which have a range of different cultures in their community.

What do you like doing outside of work?

I am a very keen sportsman. I am a very keen golfer and also play table tennis. I also enjoying listening to music and travelling. Most of all I love spending time with my family and friends.
