At a time when many schools are reviewing and refreshing their current curriculum, we can help you in re-designing yours.
By doing so, you and your school can ensure that your English writing and reading curriculums meets the needs of your children and their community, as well as preparing them for life at secondary school and beyond.
We will support you to develop a primary curriculum that is:
“Ruth supported my school with a complete rewrite of the English and non-core curriculum and gave specialist teaching support and mentoring, providing passionate inspiration and a motivational ‘can do’ attitude to my leaders. I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough, an inspiration to me and my team.”
Being a leader is a skill, the teaching of which is often neglected.
We support middle leaders to understand what it takes to make positive changes in their school, develop others and evaluate successes to inform future plans.
This includes our NEW reading audit which will support your school to be OFSTED ready!
Our coaching strengthens leadership by:
“Ruth is a passionate and engaging consultant who uses her extensive knowledge to effectively prepare leaders and teachers to become reflective in their visions.
