Ruth has worked with a number of schools across Cheshire West and Chester over the last twelve months. Her training has helped me and many of my colleagues develop a greater understanding of outstanding early years practice, curriculum and child development, assessment and inspection. When supporting schools, Ruth skilfully draws upon her experience as a Teacher, Headteacher, School Improvement Advisor, Early Years Consultant and OFSTED Inspector. She has a deep understanding of best practice in early years education based on evidence , and not the latest education fad or top down initiative.
