Both Sophie and I are passionate teachers who believe that all children and young people deserve to have an education which is suited to their needs and interests. We advocate that no child or young person should be out of education or 'left behind' and argue that every child is able to reach their full potential on a path that is right for them. Through relationship building, effective strategies and a detailed understanding of the child, we aim to foster well being, self-esteem and social, emotional and academic understanding in order for every child to thrive.
