News: Diane Stinson is Key Stage 2 Deputy Standardisation Leader for STA


Diane and Heather have provided a range of training for us so far this year both on an individual school and Trust level. They are both very experienced and passionate about their work and provide great clarity and understanding especially in light of the significant changes made to assessment this year. All colleagues involved in their training have been inspired and motivated, and have been keen to try out strategies suggested. Diane and Heather’s support has been excellent and has made a massive difference to our practice.

This year all my staff have attended Abraxas training courses. Of particular support have been the Year 2 and Year 6 New Assessment & Accountability Measures Training. My staff have returned with a wealth of information and feel fully informed to approach the new assessment procedures in 2016.

The high quality training has led me to book bespoke training sessions linked directly to our SDP needs, which has directly impacted on our provision and attainment and progress of children. These sessions are always delivered to a high standard and we are provided with great resources.

Heather and Diane are extremely pleasant and approachable, with outstanding up-to-date knowledge skills and information at their fingertips.

I would recommend Abraxas training to any school looking for high quality up-to-date CPD. Abraxas are now our first port of call for all CPD.

I cannot praise the work that Abraxas have done with our school highly enough.
Abraxas have worked with the leadership team to deliver high quality training in Literacy and Mathematics for teaching and non-teaching staff.
Diane and Heather are very professional, well organised, very knowledgable and above all - friendly. Their work has helped to ensure that the practice in our school is consistently good with some outstanding.
I would recommend Abraxas to anyone who requires good quality Inset that meets the need's of their school.

Deputy Head
Moorthorpe Primary (J&I) School

I contacted Abraxas Education to provide support and training for members of staff at my school. The range of course material provided by Abraxas meant that the development needs of my staff were fully met with a series of training sessions arranged to suit our school.

Diane and Heather made the learning material fun and engaging whilst making staff feel comfortable enough to ask those 'silly questions.'

Teachers have developed their skills to allow them to meet the learning needs of their children in English and Maths and Teaching Assistants have now got the knowledge and understanding to deliver high quality interventions. Both have had a significant impact on the attainment and progress of the children in school.
The staff at Thorpe Primary School would welcome any input from Abraxas Education! We look forward to working with them again.
