What do schools says about Vanessa?
With maths as a key priority in our S.I.P, Vanessa's expertise and support has made a significant impact upon improving the quality of teaching and raising standards and achievement. Staff left all training sessions with a bank of resources and practical ideas, as well as improved subject knowledge and a greater confidence in their maths teaching. As a result our Key Stage 2 maths results improved by 31% from 2016 to 2017. I highly recommend Vanessa's maths consultancy whether it is for a subject leader, whole staff or individuals
Vanessa has worked with the staff as a whole through delivering continuous professional learning, with our Mathematics leader and with individual teachers to develop their practice. She is highly skilled, knowledgeable and professional; staff find her approachable and empathetic. As a result of her work with us, the quality of leadership in mathematics together with the quality of teaching have improved. We have already commissioned Vanessa for further support, a clear indication of the regard we have for her as a school.
