As a Headteacher I have worked with Naila for approximately 3 years in her capacity as a professional coach.
The work I have engaged Naila in has been for a variety of reasons and for a range of colleagues. These have included:
- Development of whole school mission statement and vision – all stakeholders were involved.
- Professional development coaching – moving from Requiring Improvement to Good and from Good to Outstanding.
- Personal and Professional coaching for a range of colleagues.
- Personal, Professional coaching for me as HT.
The impact of Naila’s work within my school has proved to be dramatic.
Our whole school community speak with one voice and I believe that every person employed in my school is here for the right reason – CHILDREN!
The impact in terms of 1:1 coaching has moved several people on in terms of their practice and as a direct result our children and families are provided with service and education of high quality.
Personally, I invested in Naila in preparation for inspection to ensure that I was prepared.
When we received the call for our most recent inspection (September 2016) I texted Naila to inform her. She arrived, unannounced, on Day 1 of the inspection to offer support to all my staff. I had no idea she was on site as I was involved in the inspection. Naila continued her support for me throughout the 2 days sending me numerous texts to keep me going! For this I can’t thank her enough. I have no doubt that the work and time Naila has dedicated to my school, my staff and me personally (both paid and unpaid) have contributed to our recent Ofsted judgement of GOOD in all areas. Naila does not just provide the support you pay for, she is totally committed to you and her input goes way beyond the call of duty.
Naila always works to the highest standard and with strict confidentiality. As a result I will continue to work with her in the future.
I cannot recommend Naila highly enough. If you wish for change in your establishment and/or a change in your staff attitude/approach, it is essential that you invest in the best!
