I worked with Natalie on the DfE / National Strategies pilot programme for Achievement for All, in which she was a regional director. As an NLE and experienced headteacher it was refreshing to work with someone who is so well informed, motivated, up to date with current ‘chalkface’ practice and clear about how schools leaders can be hugely effective to all school improvement and pupil progress. Throughout the programme her leadership skills were second to none, ensuring all engaged on the programme were held to account in maximizing the life chances for our children. She had a flair for supporting the cpd of colleagues who needed nurturing and was an extremely successful motivator who got the best out of those around her, through her commitment, passion and fun approaches.
Natalie is a highly skilled professional, able to lead training and professional development events with considerable success and impact. Her contribution can only be described as 'outstanding'.

Thank you for a brilliant day. Really useful course delivered by a very knowledgeable trainer. I have come away with lots of ideas on how to improve my Provision Mapping!
Natalie is an excellent trainer and is in a great deal of demand. I know that her courses are often sold out, her evaluations are excellent and her recent national work for the National Strategy means she has a great reputation. Natalie was a consultant for my latest book ‘How to be an Amazing Teacher' contributing greatly as an adviser on a chapter about SEN. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an outstanding trainer.

Thankyou so much for the 'outstanding' day you delivered to my staff on Outstanding Teaching. It was practical and fun, yet really got us to reflect on our practice as a school. Just what we needed!

Natalie has delivered some of the best training courses I have attended as a SENCO. She is very knowledgeable but remains grounded in real practice. A brilliant trainer!
Thank you for a truly inspirational and informative training day today.
