IQM aspire to be at the forefront of developments to ensure the inclusive education of young people. We believe that for future generations to be able to live in harmony, we all have a responsibility to ensure that we provide an inclusive education for every child. Every child is an individual, unique in every way, with the potential to shape the world in which they live. As educators we have to ensure that our young people develop an inclusive approach to others, however different they may seem.

IQM Ambassador Manager
I have had three headships, in a small village First School(4-9 year olds) followed by a medium sized First and Middle School headship and my final role was in a very large city primary school (three form entry with a school led nursery.
In my last headship I had the pleasure of establishing a young and highly competent inclusion team. They led our setting to Inclusion Quality Mark and latterly, Centre of Excellence.
I am married, with two grown up sons, the eldest of which has Down’s Syndrome. He’s thirty and works in an inclusive Café and in a City library where he supports the archaeological team one day each week and helps out in the Children’s library section on another day.
Interests include the arts, gardening and keeping my French up to scratch. I keep active, with swimming, gym and “rusty rackets” tennis sessions in our local club each week.
It is a real privilege to work as an assessor for IQM, where I see wonderful examples of inclusive practice and make some recommendations for schools to consider further improvement.
