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!
