Sue Seddon | Fairfield Primary School | Assistant Head Teacher
We had Mako in over the last academic year and they kindly ran CPD staff meetings and class sessions. This totalled 7 separate sessions in total where they took one class per year group and ran an iPad learning session that was linked to the children’s topic, English or Science for that term. This was planned with the class teacher a week before the session was delivered and the other teachers in the year group (we are 3 form entry) sat in on the lesson as CPD opportunities so that they were then able to deliver the same/adapted lesson to their own class. The classes ranged from Reception – up to Year 6 and each session they delivered was appropriately pitched to fully engage the children. Their teaching and leading of each of the lessons was lively, engaging and the children and teachers thoroughly enjoyed and were inspired by the activities. Mako were professional and punctual, they were flexible in their approach and fully understand the needs of a very busy educational environment. Their knowledge of technology is second to none and they left us with ideas for using our iPads that we could not have developed ourselves. Our class sizes average 25 lively children with some who present very challenging behaviour, disability as well as a wide range of abilities. All children were fully engaged in each session (I was present for most of the sessions as having responsibility for ICT).
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mako to you for working with children and young people.
