If you think your child might benefit from some support getting ready for high school, why not invest in some coaching!

The package includes:

  • A 30 minute introductory session with a parent/carer
  • Two 30 min coaching sessions with the young person including interactive activities and discussion points
  • Access to the Get Secondary Ready online course with handy short videos, communication templates, child activities and reference guides
  • Template emails/letters for parents/carers to communicate with the existing and new school
  • A 30 min follow up in September to be used by the parent or child

All sessions are carried out online with multiple times and dates to choose from across March, April and May. Spread the cost over three payments or pay in full.

Additional coaching sessions and/or resources can be added for an extra fee.

The Jargon Buster

£30.00 for 30 minutes or £50.00 for 60 minutes

Want help making sense of secondary education?

Did you last enter a secondary school decades ago? Are your child’s educators using acronyms you don’t understand? Are you facing decisions without fully understanding the options?

I can help. The jargon buster chat is a chance to talk through anything you’ve come across that you don’t understand where there are no silly questions.

Ideal for parents who are navigating complicated admissions arrangements; with a child with newly diagnosed special educational or medical needs; who is frequently absent or at risk of exclusion.

NB: this is a generalised information session and does not include any documentation review. This extended service is available and priced on a case by case basis.

Primary and Secondary Schools


Does your transition programme need a post-pandemic overhaul? I’ve spent over 10 years working on an induction programme that gives Year 7 students the best possible start. Contact me ASAP if I can review and work with you on yours.

What is EBSA?

A one hour CPD session exploring what classroom teachers, teaching assistants and others who speak with children about attendance need to know about Emotionally Based School Avoidance. Prices depend upon the number of attendees.

Supporting positive mental health in the classroom

A one hour CPD session designed for teachers, teaching assistants and other school staff to explore pedagogical approaches that best support children staying regulated in the classroom.

A session with a real teaching and learning focus that encourages teachers to consider how they can create a classroom culture that builds resilience, reduces ‘opt out’ and encourages a feeling of safety for all.

“Staff found it very useful to have a number of very useful, easy to embed strategies to use in the classroom to support student mental health.”
