Existing leaders have their say.

Executive Headteacher

Interpersonal skills are exceptional and valuable...

During my time working with Sally as a school leader, I have always found her to be most able, committed and engaging in her approaches to school support and improvement.  The advice she gives is always of high quality, which is accessible, motivating and underpinned by her extensive knowledge of working within a primary school setting.  Sally understands how to build capacity, at both whole school and individual level.  Her organisational and interpersonal skills are exceptional and valuable.

Sally gets it!

Sally gets it! She knows the trials, tribulations and triumphs involved in being a primary school headteacher. I have always appreciated her knowledge, advice and support in all aspects of the job, and the fun, personable and positive way she has delivered it too. I would definitely recommend any new head to listen and learn from Sally, whose mentoring and coaching skills are second to none.

...gets the best from staff.

I was fortunate enough to work with Sally when she was our headteacher at Wollaston Primary School. Her passion for redesigning the school curriculum and promoting staff development was inspirational and the development of learning lines and the “Butterfly Model” truly innovative. As a headteacher now myself these were key changes I wanted to introduce to my new school and these remain key in everyone understanding what learning is. Sally has a wealth of experience, is highly professional and hardworking and has the ability to get the best from staff.

... passionate and enthusiastic about school improvement

I have known Sally for over 20 years and have been the recipient of her knowledge and expertise throughout that time. She has supported my development as a teacher and leader, both through direct mentoring and personalised coaching. She is insightful and is well informed on current trends and priorities in schools based on her previous headship and advisory roles.

Sally is willing to share her experience in order to support individual or whole school development. She is passionate and enthusiastic about school improvement and that shines through when you work with her.

I would gladly recommend Sally to any school leaders seeking to work with a committed, supportive and experienced consultant.
