‘I just wanted to say that I found the briefing today so informative and useful and at the same time very reassuring as it underpins our actions for school improvement.
Thank you as it must have taken a lot of work putting it altogether. We are going to share your presentation and the vodcast to all of our staff during the training day scheduled on 23rd October as its key messages need to be heard by all.’
