How Did We Get Here
Until 2011, I was a Primary Adviser and Inclusion (SEN) Adviser for Lancashire County Council. I was involved in developing a range of materials including:
I was the lead adviser for the IDP (Inclusion Development Programme) in Lancashire which produced the Key Resources series to support schools in accessing provision for pupils.
Prior to joining LCC, I worked in several schools in Salford and was a Headteacher until 2000.
On Track Maths
I established Inclusive Learning Lancashire Ltd in 2011 and have been working independently with schools, teachers and SENCOs across Lancashire and Cumbria to improve the education and outcomes of primary aged children with special needs.
I have also developed training related to memory and learning, refined systems for individual pupil planning and monitoring of progress.
I work with a number of schools providing consultancy suppport and advice as well as running termly SENCO training days.
Most recently I have co-authored On Track Maths with Katharine Rogerson. It is an approach to intervening to help children with gaps in their understanding and knowledge of maths.On Track Maths is available now from Rising Stars.
