Sophie Westlake


Sophie systematically took us through the DepthofLearning Online Tracking system and built in time for staff to explore during this. She was clear and reassuring. When I was planning the day with Sophie, she had said that if I protected the afternoon session for data input, staff would be able to enter their current assessments for the core subjects and this was exactly what happened. It was a great session and I feel very positive about the future of assessment at Worplesdon.

Sophie’s knowledge of the Depth of Learning software and how staff in different roles can get the most from it was useful. Sophie was very patient when answering staff questions and showed good understanding.

- Suzie Norton, Head Teacher, William MacGregor Primary School, Staffs

Sophie really helped us to understand the full extent of the Depth of Learning system and how it can be used to inform learning and progress in school. She was able to offer hands on support and guidance and answer the many questions we had, enabling staff to become more confident in their judgements. Many thanks for a helpful, informative and well delivered session.

- Monica Best, Cowersley Primary School, Yorkshire

Training was excellent! We found the explanations of the expectations of progress were the most useful, so we now have a clearer understanding of using EYFS data and lines of good progress. Sophie was easy to work with and happy to tailor the morning to what we needed.

- Sarah Brew, Deputy Head Teacher, Thomas Hickman School

Sophie was knowledgeable about the DoL system and it was really useful to talk to her as we discussed the spring data. Sophie brought some samples from the moderation documents which was really helpful. It was a very useful meeting that helped us to move forward with our data analysis.

- Fiona Phimister, PA to Head Teacher, Bowling Park Primary School

Sophie was able to offer our school a personalised approach as the training was only for a few members of staff. She answered all of our questions immediately and was able to give personalised demonstrations of the program. It was also useful that Sophie had brought handouts and some samples of other relevant resources for us to look over. Sophie was knowledgeable and ensured we were fully au fait with DoL before she left at the end of the session.

- Sonya Black, Deputy Head Teacher, Throston Primary School, Hartlepool

It was great to spend time working in a small group with Sophie. We could ask the questions we needed answers to and Sophie was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It was a relaxed session and she was able to answer many of our queries. She could also tell us about things that were coming up on the system and other products available that might help us. A really, really useful morning. It was lovely to work with Sophie.

- Ally Lawley, Deputy Head Teacher, St Botolph's, Leicester

The most useful part of the session was Sophie's familiarity with the website and our realistic needs as users. Being a personal session she was able to answer our specific questions, from trialling the system, model on the website and explore the best options for us. It felt as though she was problem solving and training us rather than delivering a pre-planned course which was exactly what we need at this stage. Sophie patiently listened to our experiences and explained everything clearly. Thank you.
