Shine Whole School Development

“Be confident. Even if you are not, pretend to be.

No one can tell the difference”


How can we help?

Over recent years our Managing Director has helped, and continues to help, many schools as an independent school improvement consultant.


In addition to this work, we have helped a number of Local Authorities provide effective support and challenge for their schools.


We have significant experience in successfully supporting schools at every stage of their school improvement journey and often this support is recognised and endorsed by OFSTED.


You can read more about our school improvement success stories by clicking on the testimonials tab above.

Here are some examples of areas where we might add value:

  • Creating a coherent, principled and shared whole school vision

  • Whole School Self-Evaluation

  • The curriculum

  • Making the most of your strengths – ‘finding the trumpets’

  • Data / outcome review 

  • Learning and Teaching review

  • Behaviour for Learning review

  • Creating impact-focused development plans (SDP, Subject Leader, Post-OFSTED)

  • Developing a coaching culture

  • Preparing for OFSTED

  • Headteacher Appraisal


Meeting your needs

Our involvement can be to meet a one-off need or to provide longer-term capacity for innovation. 

Shine provides bespoke school development support and will tailor our support to meet your precise needs.


“…I have been a Headteacher for almost twenty years and have worked with many Advisors and Consultants during that time.  Dave has a refreshing, positive and developmental approach to Leadership development which enables colleagues to engage and enjoy even difficult tasks! He has worked with the staff, Governors and myself over the past twelve months and has lifted our spirits with his ‘can do’ attitude, clarity of focus and positive energy.  He has a wide tool kit of skills and a plethora of resources which he is willing to share to support all aspects of teaching and learning….”
