WHO WE ARE

We are former primary Head Teachers working together to support school leaders.

Between us we have been Head Teachers of eight schools, ranging from small village schools to large 3-form entry primary schools. We design and deliver leadership development programmes, provide school leaders with support and challenge, facilitate Head Teacher appraisals and generate really useful and practical resources for leaders at all levels.

We aim to offer solution-based approaches to leadership challenges whilst retaining flexibility in a rapidly changing educational climate.

WHAT WE DO

We support leaders in schools to work
efficiently and effectively

We work with leaders at all levels with the intent of enabling leadership effectiveness to be enhanced and sustained. We create easy-to-use tools which have been tried and tested in schools, with up-to-date materials enabling schools to use them to provide high impact time efficient evidence.

  • Provide school leaders with workable, up to date and practical solutions for a range of leadership functions
  • Provide bespoke consultancy provision designed to enhance the quality of leadership across the school
  • Faciliate positive connections so that schools take greater responsibility for their sustained improvement

OUR PRODUCTS

We have created a range of different products to support school leaders in their work.  Two of the most popular packs are the SEF/SIP materials which support writing the SEF and linked School Improvement plan and the Subject Leader pack including all training and support materials to enable school leaders to provide CPD to ensure that subject leaders are fully equipped for the role.

Our most recent development is the Teaching Over Time Evaluation Matrix (TOTEM) which is a system for recording all aspects of your monitoring of the quality of education.  There is a video download on our site to explain this system.  All of the materials that we create are adaptable to the individual school context and all are written to meet the requirements of the current Ofsted inspection framework.

Gather, process and report on the quality of teaching over time efficiently and effectively.

What OUR HEAD TEACHERS HAVE SAID

“A real time saver – I can report on the quality of teaching as I am undertaking my monitoring work. It saves me hours of writing up.”

Head Teacher from a Nottingham Primary Academy

“TOTEM provides me with transparency and accountability across the school. The graphs and charts enable me to report to governors at the press of a few computer keys”

Head Teacher from a Doncaster Primary School

“I use TOTEM extensively because it is efficient and constantly “live”. I can instantly generate an overview of the quality of teaching in my school”

Head Teacher from a Staffordshire Primary School

“Teachers like TOTEM because they can see their up to date profile and they can see their next steps”
