"Knowing Sarah by reputation and needing to pull together approaches to reading and literacy across my school she offered the perfect bespoke package. Sarah delivered whole school training, met with a group of parents and with a working party to develop policy.


Sarah’s vast expertise and knowledge has added immense value to the teaching of reading at Mont a l’Abbe School. Ultimately this has positively impacted progress made by the children and young people who attend."
