Here are just a few testimonials from schools, families and legal practices we’ve worked with.
Jude has a relentless focus on ensuring that the right provision is effectively targeted for pupils. She sensitively brings in new ideas and research to improve current provision, and in developing deeper understanding of a wide range of SEND at both the practitioner and school level. Her casework is of the very highest quality and her leadership work has ensured that our schools have the capacity for future self-improvement.

O really took to Jude and within a week we had a report back and a meeting was booked with school to consider strategies for O. Since then he’s made much better progress and is now saying that he enjoys school which is a big step!

Jude has been a huge support to us at AGGS over the years she has worked with us. She has been invaluable both in terms of her guidance, advice and support of staff and her work with individual students. She has always been highly professional, positive and solution-focused, ensuring that we support our young people in the most effective way possible.

Jude has a wealth of knowledge and expertise and has supported us to develop our knowledge of how to support children who may face barriers to their learning. She worked alongside us to formulate strategies and solutions and has had a significant impact on how we work as a school.
T Williams, Primary Principal, Stanley Grove Primary School
Jude has worked with Stanley Grove for a very long time. She was instrumental in devising and implementing a new behaviour policy for the school that was comprehensive yet simple to follow, based on the Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports Framework. As a result, our teachers have said that they feel better equipped to manage behaviour within the setting and empowered to create a positive climate for learning.
Ms Williams, Primary Principal, Stanley Grove Primary School
Jude is an extremely experienced educational psychologist whose vision and innovative approach successfully ensured a systemic approach to intervention and strategic professional development in order to meet the needs of pupils across a range of special and mainstream provision.
Sue Warner, Principal. Melland High School
Thank you so much for your input with K. Things have changed massively for her and she’s now talking about further study after her GSCES. This wouldn’t have been possible without you and helping her to see things differently. Thank you.
Father of K (year 11, ongoing therapeutic support)
Jude’s expertise was invaluable when implementing the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support approach at our school. Her experience and understanding of whole school change combined with research based knowledge resulted in successful pupil, parental and staff engagement.

Working with Footsteps has been a breathe of fresh air, Jude is all about making sure the right advice is delivered to the right people: those in the classroom.
