  • Interactive, engaging presentation style. Lots of resources to take away. Very useful to pull together PMD, SDP priorities and lesson observations.
    Liz Holmes, Icknield Infants School
  • Lots of actions to take back to school. Helps to prepare a rigorous process and be confident in practice.
    Bridgette Burn, Osbournby Primary School
  • A very productive day addressing what one might expect: issues of accountability, target-setting, paperwork, etc., but also asking one to re-focus and to reflect on the business of teaching, learning, leading and managing more broadly and more organically. Inspirational joined-up thinking: you’ll have ideas to take away for immediate implementation but also projects to consider and pursue for the longer term. Up-to-the-minute theory and practice.
    Martin Drury, King Edward VI Five Ways School

  • The course fully explained the effective provision of performance management. An excellent day, with relevant and highly effective delivery and resources.
    Ben Moulton, Heartsease Primary School
  • The training was brilliant on Tuesday. It was focussed and exactly what we wanted. The comments from staff were overwhelmingly positive and they found it incredibly useful, even though they felt daunted by the reality of performance management!
    Trish Stringer, Brooke Weston Academy
  • Yesterday’s Effective observation course was thought provoking and really helpful and every member of senior leadership team has come away with an action plan. I also attended the Performance management course in September – it was fantastic- great clarity around a difficult area in today’s climate – I came away with positive models of ways forward. Both courses provided the school with outstanding course materials and trainers and well worth the outlay.
