During the past seven years I have offered my experience and expertise to support a growing number of serving head teachers, assisting them with the ever increasing demands of the job. I have served as a qualified SIP for Cheshire West and Chester LA, organised and supervised ITT placements for Edge Hill University and can draw upon my 18 years experience as a Primary School Headteacher in three different schools.
I am frequently asked to assist head teachers with rewriting their School Self-evaluation Summaries and School Development Plans. However I have also been asked to support with tasks such as: lesson monitoring; preparing for OFSTED; report writing; policy formulation; appraisal; monitoring the pupil voice and training of teaching and support staff. Working across five Local Authorities, I offer a broad and independent perspective, the time that LA advisers often cannot provide and above all the practical help to complete a task. I can also act as your SIP, producing termly reports or working with you and your Governors to agree Headteacher Performance Management objectives.
My service is fully independent and confidential. I am pleased to offer professional help in any area, completing work that can best be carried out by an impartial visitor to your school. You may want confidential advice or you may simply wish to delegate one of the many tasks presently waiting in your in-tray, especially if you know an OFSTED inspection is imminent.
In all cases, I work to support the Headteacher. As a consultant, I am accountable solely to you, not to the LA, OFSTED or any outside body, and all our dealings will be fully confidential. For 2014 my rates are £320 per day or £160 per half day, to include all travel and reasonable follow-up work. I make no charge for an introductory visit, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you think I may be of assistance.
