About (Oooh you don’t really want to know about me.)


23 years in Teaching (well apart from a couple of years as a consultant). Hoping at some point to experience leafy green schools.

Took the scenic route to becoming a head after years of saying ‘I don’t blummin’ want that job!’ and ‘Why on earth would anyone do that?’ Now a firm believer that it is the most amazing job in the world.

Proud father of two wonderfully funny boys. Husband to the most tolerant wife (she’s quite low maintenance.)

5 describing words. Driven, bald, sarcastic, beardy, kaffy-hearted (it’s a Whitby term meaning soft)

  1. Hello there!
    Caught your picture book for Y6 post via Twitter – Thanks for an idea for my Y7 Library Lessons next year.
    Can i ask – which theme you use for the layout of your blog. Our blog is about 7 years old and could do with a revamp over the summer. This one looks clean and fresh.


  2. Hey Simon, do you have an email address I can contact you on? I’m wanting to chat to you regarding an upcoming collaboration. Thanks!


  3. Hi thank you for sharing the ideas of children books to people who may not have the exposure like you have. Where could I find all the three lists of picture books for Year 3 as I can only see only one list out of the three in your twitter. Thank you
