Executive Headteacher with Foxfield and Woodhill Primary Schools in South East London.  Committed to sharing best practice and leadership thinking; learning from each other and generally being useful.  From the blogs to the documents, there are resources and ideas we want to share and believe can make a difference.  Giving away our best ideas helps us create new ones.

"But revolutions dont wait for legislation.  They emerge from what people do at ground level.  Education doesnt happen in committee rooms or the rhetoric of politicians.  Its what goes on between learners and teachers in actual schools"

Sir Ken Robinson (Creative Schools)
