I have thirty years’ experience in primary education in London and the South East including senior leadership roles. My most recent role was a five year period with the National Strategies as a Senior Adviser where I worked on the highly acclaimed Communication, Language and Literacy Development (CLLD) Programme; planning and delivering high quality CPD and materials in order to support LAs, ITT, teachers and practitioners improve language and literacy outcomes for all children.

I am passionately committed to ensuring that children experience an enriching and motivating language and literacy provision in the home or school setting. I know that the role of the adult is crucial; that training and support should have identifiable and immediate impact on enhancing and improving adult practice. Therefore the consultancy offer is precise, practical and solutions focused. As no two establishments are alike, I offer bespoke in-house consultancy and tailored CPD packages designed specifically for the context of your LA, school or setting.
