What our clients say...

"I have worked with Susie over many years. When I needed some staff training on key priorities, I asked Susie to support. Her knowledge of current developments were particularly useful, both supporting staff and challenging their thinking. The focus on grammar and whole class guided reading has certainly supported the staff in improving attainment for children. Our KS2 results clearly show the impact of the support."

Bryn Gibson, Headteacher, Harwell Primary School

"Thank you so much Susie for yet another brilliant inset which, as always, gave me loads of confidence and ideas."

Zoe Duff, Burford Primary School

"The teachers across the school are now much more confident at teaching reading and lessons observed have been much stronger and really focused on delivering key reading skills.  We feel that the work with Susie has strengthened the teaching of reading across the school."

Lisa Benniston, Hardwick School, Banbury

"As a group, the Didcot Area Partnership of Schools value the professional development of our staff to enable learners to grow and succeed. Susie has supported this across the year, both responding to schools' individual needs and  partnership-wide issues, including supporting writing moderation.  Staff have appreciated the level of support and expertise on offer. Due to the success of this professional development, we will be continuing this support in the coming year."

Bryn Gibson, Headteacher, Harwell Primary School (Didcot Area Partnership of Schools)

"What a wonderful course, Jane! I have had more ideas to use after this than from any other course I have attended. Thank-you!"
