What’s your priority?


  • Make self-evaluation a powerful tool for improved outcomes for children

  • Empower middle leaders to be a force for reflective development

  • Develop ways to engage Governors in strategic planning and effective monitoring

  • Help every teacher reflect positively on their classroom performance

  • If you know your next steps, we can help you take them.

  • If you are already simply the best, we can help you stay there.

  • If you feel static, we can show you ways to make the most of the talents you already have


  • A positive and 'can-do' approach

  • A focus on children and their attainment, front line staff and their development, Governors and their role

  • Powerful strategies for school improvement

  • Care, respect and appropriate challenge for your school, your staff, your children and your wider community

  • From toilets to senior leadership, support for a big picture vision backed up by practical actions

  • Personalised programmes and tried and tested packages.

  • See "About" for my background and experience.

Examples of what I can offer Heads and senior teams are set out below:

The scope of the sessions, (content and context) is determined by the Head (and their team) and agreed. The value is in the quality of the confidential professional analysis, discussion, reflection and advice that we can provide, leading to improved outcomes for children.

Examples of topics I have worked on with schools:


Preparing for inspection

Curriculum development and review


‘Improve your classroom teaching’ package

Recently appointed and aspiring Heads/Deputies

NQT and TA training

Performance management


Staff development

Data analysis

Governor training and development

Self-evaluation and SEF writing

Work scrutiny

Strategic planning


School timetable analysis

Financial planning

Coming out of special measures

Personnel issues

Pupil voice





Improving teaching and learning in the classroom

Appointing staff

School development/improvement planning

Lesson evaluations

Making judgements about quality – audit of where your school is now

Leadership and management development at all levels

Paul has also led one-off days on a school improvement agenda devised by the Head and himself, personal to the school, that involved a number of activities – e.g. short lesson observations, data analysis, forward strategic thinking, generating options for remodelling the school’s staffing structure and interviewing for a middle leader post. (That was a busy day!). As ever, it is the “so what” that is important – what you will do next as a result of the work during the session and what the impact is for your young people.
