A bit about me

Working within the education sector providing advice on employment and education matters enables me to be truly people focused. I particularly enjoy the pastoral aspects of my work, both for pupils and schools as employers.

The diversity and breadth of my work makes it endlessly interesting, raising new problems to solve, and I always try to keep my advice clear and jargon-free so that it’s easy to understand. I work with a range of clients, including independent schools, academies and maintained schools, and I also advise commercial employment clients.

Outside work I am passionate about dance, and love to bake.

Document everything – always follow up a telephone call or a meeting with an email or note setting out what was discussed. The ability to rely on a written record of a conversation can be enough to prevent issues from escalating.

Sign up for our monthly newsletter and essential briefing notes and attend our regular training sessions and seminars to keep up to date with all the latest education sector news and key current issues.

Review your policies annually, taking legal advice where possible, to ensure they reflect the current legal position and are as robust as possible, so they work for you should the need arise.
