Moving out of special measures (awarded, in part for ineffective safeguarding practices) to outstanding in nine months is no easy task; indeed, it took collective commitment, courage and openness.  Enlisting the services of Sarah Turner was one of the best decisions we took because she offered expertise and deep insight.  Her attention to detail, preparation and follow up provided robust probing of our systems and practices which, I have no doubt, paved our way assuring our young people of ‘exemplary practice’ across our school.  I am looking forward to Sarah becoming our long term critical friend!

Thank you for a very interesting session. I feel this has helped the support staff – and me – in understanding the schools initial involvement and the various procedures creating the ‘bigger picture’ of what happens once a concern about a child has been raised. You have a way of holding an audience’s attention and creating interest and enthusiasm for all.

Sarah worked with our school carrying out an audit of safeguarding and delivering training to staff. She was very down to earth but thorough and gave us clear actions to follow. She is also approachable and willing to offer support to improve. A really useful day!

“Sarah conducted an independent Safeguarding Review/ Quality Assurance Audit for us and we were impressed by her depth of knowledge, collaborative nature and attention to detail. Sarah’s preparation was thorough and enabled her to gain a good understanding of our structure and the work we carry out within the Education sector prior to our session. This ensured that the session itself was really productive. Sarah shared a wealth of knowledge and guidance with us and was able to reassure us about many aspects of our current procedures while recommending additional enhancements. Sarah was a pleasure to work with, an expert in her field and I would recommend her wholeheartedly”. Michelle Smith, Education Business Partnership CEO
