Parents' comments
"Lucy will now reason with you and can hold long and inquisitive conversations, often asking a question that will really surprise us.
We are also very lucky that Lucy attends a school that believes in your programme enough to finance and support her. I only wish more children with problems could have this great opportunity too."

My Top Tips for Successful Head Teachers

  • Make your school a memorable experience for children and adults. Something they will remember all their lives.
  • Let yourself fall in love with the place and the people and let them fall in love with you. You will get so much from them.
  • Say a few words to all adults each day. It is a minute to you but it will mean everything to them.
  • Take on people that are more intelligent and talented than you are. Don't be afraid of their strength or their intellect ... you need them.
  • Treat staff like balloons. Hold the strings but let them fly .. they will innovate, initiate, develop, organise and so much more.
  • Take Ofsted very, very seriously.  Prepare thoroughly and be prepared to fight.  The preparation begins the day they leave after the last inspection.
