See this innovation in action

Nick Simms Federation Assistant Headteacher  Achievement and Attainment The King Alfred Federation  ‘The adults quickly built a good report with the children and were able to communicate effectively. Talmud’s communication was really good in the organisation of the event. The team were professional and friendly. From the outset, the children were really engaged in the activities and wanted to take part. They got a lot out of the session and asked when the next one was. The children who took part faced a wide range of challenges including, difficult home lives, ability to focus in class, the ability to be respectful to all people they come across, maintaining peer relationships, making the right decisions, levels of resilience. The children enjoyed the session and definitely took useful strategies and ideas away that hopefully they will use in and out of school.’ 
Michael Roach Interim Director of Lewisham Learning (0.8) Headteacher of John Ball Primary School (0.2) National Leader of Education  Talmud Bah worked with me whilst I was the Executive Headteacher at Torridon Junior School. He was engaged in a focussed piece of work for us where he led and coordinated a mentoring programme with a group of boys in Y6, the majority of whom were underachieving or experiencing various challenges and barriers to their learning. The majority of the pupils were BAME.  Talmud’s skills in quickly building trust and a positive relationship with the boys was exceptional. He quickly developed a dialogue with them where they were able to articulate for themselves what they were finding challenging as well as the solutions they might employ to improve things. In a number of cases he used their own personal interests, skills and talents, such as music, to further develop the relationship and build the self-esteem of pupils.  Talmud was also able to reach out to the parents and families of the boys and extend his work to supporting them. In one particular case he was instrumental in mediating between the family and the school to secure a positive outcome for all.  The impact of the work was that the attendance, behaviour and wider achievement of almost all of the boys improved over time. Where the pupils had identified SEND Talmud was able to work with other staff at the school to ensure his approach was inclusive and in line with the strategies already in place as well as proving further insight about the pupils’ vies in order to amend practice.  I would highly recommend Talmud to you.
