Areas we cover:
Mark listened to what we wanted to do and helped us plan out a ‘road map’ to get there. Mark was brilliant at keeping us on the right path and keeping us true to our ‘why’. He was able to take our ‘why’ and show us ‘how’ this could happen. The teachers felt incredibly supported and guided by the work Mark did with them as he made it easy for them to see how little things can have the greatest impact. Mark has a catch phrase ‘Keep IT Simple’- I couldn’t agree more.Michelle ThomasExecutive Headteacher and NLE of New Wave Federation
