Stephen has worked in primary education all working life and recently as Headteacher of two primary schools in London.
He has led an outstanding school to become consistently one of the top 100 schools in the country and, in 2018, was named the top primary school in London. He also was asked to lead a ‘Requires Improvement’ school, taking it to its best ever results within a year and making the school one of the most improved schools in the country.
He has also received several awards for his innovative leadership. More recently, he has worked with the DfE as ‘an distinguished expert in his field’ on KS2 National Curriculum tests as well as consulting with primary schools on assessment. He recently presented at a pan-London conference on ‘Life after Levels: Assessment in the new National Curriculum’.
After being asked ‘can we buy this?’ for the hundredth time by visiting schools, Stephen set up PrimaryLeadership.co.uk to help other senior leaders make impact quickly, without resorting to expensive products from educational companies which are making fortunes from cash-strapped schools.
All resources on this website have been used by Stephen to lift achievement in the schools he had led.
