Anna Bateman

Senior Consultant and Founder

I successfully help schools improve the mental health and well-being of pupils. I am both driven and passionate about improving schools and creating a resilient, mentally healthy ethos.

With over 23 years’ experience in education as a teacher, trainer, consultant, and Interim Executive Board member, I have gained a fantastic understanding of pedagogy, school improvement, leadership and what works. When I work with you I come with a vast amount of educational experience of how to improve outcomes and the skills to train and engage staff to lead to a lasting change.

 

My educational experiences were hampered by dealing with my own mental health issues and that of a close family member.  Since then I have sought to develop my resilience and emotional well-being through reading, therapy and coaching.  It is this experience coupled with a deep desire to improve the confidence and well-being of children, despite adversity, that ensures meaningful progress in all my work.
