I am grateful to Victoria Carr, Headteacher at Elton Primary School for this testimonial:

“Rarely have I had the privilege to work with such a knowledgeable, dynamic, creative and supportive professional! Working with Chris for a single day enabled my staff to pull together our ideas and focus on our key school drivers before preparing a creative curriculum sure to capture the imagination of staff and pupils alike. We will certainly be working with Chris again and would not hesitate to recommend her as a humanities enthusiast, with a wealth of knowledge and ideas of how to support staff to deliver, and more importantly inspire.”
