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
Governor training and development
Self-evaluation and SEF writing
School timetable analysis
Coming out of special measures
Improving teaching and learning in the classroom
School development/improvement planning
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.
