I am an experienced School Improvement Adviser with a background in primary education, technology and local authority advisory services. I became a Deputy Safeguarding Lead for Edsential in 2014 and became the designated Lead in April 2017. I provide advice, support and training to all Edsential employees and to schools, parents and young people on Safeguarding, E-Safety and the application of technology. I have assessed schools for the 360 Degree Safe Quality Mark and I am a CEOP Ambassador. As a result of being passionate about children’s entitlement to a rich, diverse curriculum, I actively promote the safe and effective use of technology.

Through my work with Governors Services I provide training on the safe use of technology, Safer Recruitment, Academisation, Pupil Premium funding and preparing for Ofsted.
