Personal Development Matters is the education consultancy company of Sarah
I have over 20 years’ experience in education, starting as a Primary teacher I then moved into road safety education. In this role I delivered a wide range of sessions to children and young people of all ages and wrote numerous resources.
I then moved into Staffordshire County Council’s advisory team where I held a number of roles. These all focussed on personal development and wellbeing and included the National Healthy Schools Programme, PSHE education, Citizenship, pupil voice, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development and mental health.
In these roles I developed my skills to support school improvement including staff training, delivering sessions for children and young people and writing educational materials.
I took the decision to form my own company as I am passionate about supporting schools to effectively address the personal development of their children and young people. Now more than ever, it is vital we provide a broad and balanced education which helps children and young people to be happy, healthy, safe and fully prepared for the next stage of education and for adult life.
I recognise the pressures on those working in education, so I aim to provide high quality services which make life easier for the busy school leader or class teacher.
Working predominantly in Primary schools I offer support in the following:-
