Here are examples of what teachers say about Dean's School Workshops

Alison Wright (Headteacher Sherard Primary School Melton Mowbray)

“He knows the importance of good communication with the school and staff, joint planning, clear roles and responsibilities to ensure the projects are planned and completed within set timelines.” “Dean has a true awareness of how schools work and works with them to achieve fantastic outcomes.” “I would have no reservations in recommending Dean and his excellent work to any one.”

Jo Blackburn (Headteacher Claybrooke Primary School Claybrooke Parva Lutterworth) 

“Extend them! To 5 or 6 sessions to allow them to change/adapt/improve their models” This is an important edition which should be added to the curriculum, Jo “would like to see this idea developed more through generating storyboards/adventures & creating films

Heather Cobbins (Art Coordinator Belton Cofe Primary School Belton Loughborough) 

“A plus point to mention when ‘selling’ your creative packages is the enthusiasm for storytelling”, the children “were so eager to write/draw the world that their models came from.”

Tracy Mcconnell (Headteacher Asfordby Hill Cofe Primary School Melton)

"We've just finished the healthy fruit and veg figures sessions and our heroes and villains are painted and ready for stories to be written about them.  Its been a life save and meant I haven't had to do loads of planning and getting resources ready on my Wednesday teaching sessions."
