Heads2gether was founded in 2018 and is a Sole Trading company run by myself, Jamie Petrie. Having worked for over 22 years in Primary Education, undertaking all roles from Class Teacher to Head Teacher, I have a true understanding of what it takes to run a successful school.
I spent two years on secondment at Education Scotland in the Assessment Team. This experience enhanced my knowledge and understanding of the education system and allowed me to deliver training nationally.
My most recent role was Head Teacher of a school which was, at the time I was appointed Head Teacher, going through challenging times. It was this experience of turning the school around that has led me to this path. The School Self Evaluation Process Heads2gether offers is a bespoke service designed to give a very clear picture of where your school is in relation to How Good Is Our School? 4. The focus for the process are the 4 key Quality Indicators;
1.3 Leadership of Change
2.3 Learning, Teaching and Assessment
3.1 Ensuring Wellbeing, Equity and Inclusion
3.2 Raising Attainment and Achievement
During the process I will deliver bespoke training in any areas identified as areas of need (linked to your School Improvement Plan).
At the end of the week long engagement a report will be produced showcasing all your school is doing in relation to the 4 key Quality Indicators. This will tell the story of your school and will have involved all stakeholders including staff, pupils, parents and community groups.
I also offer bespoke training in all things Primary Education ranging from two hour sessions, half day sessions and full day sessions from planning and assessment to workload and school environments (and much more).
