Lindsay Palmer

Head of Teaching School, The Mead Academy Trust

I wanted to write to thank you for leading the excellent in-service training on phonics at our school last Monday. Your expertise and experience shone through so that everyone had confidence in what you were presenting. You led the session with assurance and a high emotional intelligence, which meant that you were able to ‘connect’ with the audience. This built their confidence so that everyone had self-belief that they could put actions in place to improve children’s learning in our school. The audience had a very wide range of knowledge and practice in phonics but you managed to engage and enthuse everyone.

I have really enjoyed the course.  It has definitely been the most positive and beneficial teaching course I have completed.
