Our Early Years Consultant has been a tremendous support for Early Years across the Pre-School and Reception cohorts in our Federation. Her approach is friendly and supportive, whilst also providing the rigour you need when wanting your provision thoroughly evaluated. She has a reassuring presence; she is so knowledgeable and insightful and certainly gets to nub of what is good and what areas need support.

I just wanted to email to say thank you so much for delivering such an interesting and useful phonics training day. I found the whole day relevant and beneficial to my practice. I learned a lot and felt you were knowledgeable, thorough and engaging with your delivery. I have already begun to put in place aspects of the programme. I will be looking to book on some more the English courses soon.

Thank you for the phone call this morning, it was a pleasure to speak with you. I have downloaded the [Young Devon] toolkit to take a look at with [my son] so thank you for that also.
I received the educational psychology report in regards to his EHCP this morning so I am just trying to take a read through that also. Things are finally moving in the right direction for him I feel. Thank you for reaching out to us, it's reassuring to know I have nice people to assist us through these processes.
Feedback about one of our Family Support Workers from our EHE TeamMore about our Elective Home Education Team
Firstly I wanted to share with you some fantastic feedback that we have received with regards to the support that parents and families are receiving from the advisory teachers. This has made a real difference to so many people and has been really appreciated. For some families, just being remembered and receiving that quick call makes a huge difference, being given that opportunity to be heard or to be able to ask for help / support because someone has asked if they can do anything is so very different than families needing to make that initial contact. Please pass on thanks from the Forum to all the advisory teachers, their work is much appreciated..

On behalf of the Governors at our school and in particular the headteacher recruitment panel, we would like to say a very big thank you for your support, professional steer and input throughout the interview process.
The decision was very close and the debate long and you gave us the space to reach a decision in which we are happy.

I have watched all five of your taster modules “Free Developing Vocabulary PD” in conjunction with Pearson Education.
I have also recently completed two of your courses through ‘FutureLearn’: ‘An Introduction to Teaching Vocabulary’ and ‘Equity in Education – Supporting Active Participation in Lessons’ (through pre-teaching and assigning competence).
I found both courses to be extremely relevant, informative and easy to follow as well as incorporating useful strategies, supported by credible references. I have been very impressed by the Babcock courses and am looking forward to the new ones appearing. I have recommended your courses to my colleagues and also alerted our SLT to the value of the content.

You are one of the most intuitive Ed Psychs I have had the pleasure of working with. I would not want the school to miss out on your wisdom and knowledge, that you share in such a way that neither staff nor parents feel threatened.

It has been a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with you and the support you have provided to so many of our complex children, their families and our staff.
We have been so fortunate and appreciate the advice and knowledge you bring to the school setting. Without this, our SEND practices for children with significant difficulties would not be as good as they are.
