Customer Feedback

What can I say Helen, other than thank you! I am so grateful you chose my school to trial your deep dive resource packs. The subject leaders worked through them during twilight sessions and their subject leader time. They are so well written in language which is easy to understand and they completely took the fear out of the deep dive for every subject leader. We had deep dives in reading and phonics, maths, science and history.

Every leader took the completed toolkit in to all meetings with inspectors and said it absolutely gave them all of the answers to questions they were asked about curriculum design, content knowledge and their impact as a leader. They said the questions and answers resources were invaluable. The inspector praised the depth of knowledge and understanding the subject leaders had, and commented that they were instrumental in moving us from good to outstanding. Believe me when I say; they did not have such a deep and thorough knowledge before working through your deep dive toolkits.
