My name is Simeon Corfield. I have 20 years experience working in Primary Education and recognise that good/outstanding teaching is the key to the success for all children and my aim is always to support and challenge teachers to develop skills and equip them to make the difference pupils deserve.
Now as an independent consultant, my aim is to build relationships with teaching professionals to empower them to be the teachers they want to be – being rewarded in their work by seeing children thrive.
I offer a range of practical approaches:
• working with school leaders to help identify teachers needing support; audit school improvement/subject leader plans
• working alongside teachers that require improvement or have identified areas to develop as part of their performance self-appraisal – whether this be from RI to Good and beyond or ‘fine-tuning’ aspects of practice to move from Good to Outstanding.
• delivering whole-school INSET, meeting the needs of schools’ improvement plans – teachers and/or support staff
• auditing practice in schools and provide written feedback reports for school leaders and governors
