I have learnt so much from you and if I am as half a leader at my school as you have been to us, then I would be happy! You have inspired me on so many different levels and I thank you for that.

I now have a real sense of purpose in my role as the science leader. I know how to monitor my school’s ability to teach science and where we can go next to further improve it. My networking skills have also developed… as a result I am now working with other agencies outside of school to improve science further.

Thank you… for your support during the Enthuse Award. You have helped me to be a more confident subject leader and have supported me in developing my role, through help with observations, delivering a staff meeting, book scrutiny and support with an action plan. We all feel more confident with using the outdoors to enhance our lessons and also to link science more with other subject areas.

Thanks again,
Chloe Pounder, Science Leader, Kirk Smeaton Primary School


Without Helen and her valuable input, the school would not have progressed forward with either the expertise or the direction that it has done. I would be happy to use the phrase ‘Ofsted ready’ … now.

The support from Helen Spring has considerably contributed to the success of our project, from identifying needs, team teaching, whole-staff CPD to guiding us through the STEM award process.

Howsham Mill is a magical island of learning adventures for children. The education officer at the mill motivates and inspires the children in many areas of the curriculum. They arrive back at school full of the experiences provided.
