“On behalf of our schools (Primary Schools in Swindon), I would like to thank you for carrying out the evaluations and providing your recommendation for our next steps. I have had such great feedback from all three schools, commenting on what a positive experience it was and how they had been able to grow their knowledge.”

“Thank you for the work you did on reviewing our Pupil Premium allocation and expenditure. Coincidentally, Ofsted arrived two days after your visit and we were able to confidently discuss our Pupil Premium expenditure and impact.”

“Supporting us is your role but you go far beyond that and I know that I’m not the only one who appreciates what you do, so again thank you”    Sue, Bassetts Farm Primary
