I am a head on my 4th headship. I have taught in Bristol, Tower Hamlets, Bristol again and I am now in the West Country.
I run a large school (600+ over 2 sites) and also run a Special School within the mainstream setting.
Learning something new everyday – even when I do not want to.

Hi I love this blog, don’t ever stop writing! Regarding your Twitter request for speakers in July, (possibly false) modesty prevents me from publicly describing myself as world class. However if a speaker that empowers schools to give children within the early years the very best start fits within your brief, I am happy to offer my services if the beer can be substituted for prosecco.

Thanks Kym, we deffo want to include the range of speakers. There is a group of us planning and we are just about to give out roles. Be in touch.

We are an education organisation and have recently launched the second instalment of our UK Space Agency-funded free primary science programme which follows Tim Peake’s Principia mission. We’d love to tell you more about it as it is a free programme and we think it would be of interest to your readers. Last year over 60,000 British school children participated with much enthusiasm and once again we’re trying to reach a diverse audience as we want our programme to be as accessible as possible to all children and are hoping that by contacting teachers and heads directly they’d be willing to share with their networks.
Looking forward to your reply! You can contact me directly using the email provided.

Love your writings. They are very insightful into the life of an experienced head teacher. I work for a digital marketing innovation company who specialise in web design are looking to partner with schools.
Wondering if you’ll be interested in perhaps talking to me from a market research perspective on a product we are developing to help the maintenance of schools content management system for their websites?

I hope you don’t mind me emailing/messaging you, but I am Zoe, an ex primary teacher now working for Kapow Primary. At Kapow we have identified that teachers often don’t have the time to develop their specialist subject teaching skills, and so we have been working with the UK leading specialist primary teachers to create bite sized videos and lesson packs to address this need.
I really enjoyed your blog page/twitter feed/website and thought that you would be a perfect fit for Kapow and what we believe in.
With all this in mind, I was wondering if you would like a free subscription to our training videos and lesson packs in return for a review or coverage on your blog?
If you are interested, please let me know and I will let you have more details.

Hello Zoe, that is extremely kind of you and I am honoured you have picked me out. It is a no though as I am finding the balancing act of running a school and keeping the content of what I write about worthwhile and of a high quality very difficult. I wish you all the very best though. Kind regards Brian.
