Profile

Janet is a lecturer in Educational Leadership and Management. She has been an active university teacher and researcher for a number of years, working on a wide range of issues, such as federations of schools, the evaluation of the impact of CPD in schools, the implementation of workforce reform, and a multisector project looking at organisations which perform beyond expectations in education, sport and business.

Her most recent work has mainly been around parents’ engagement in their children’s learning, particularly as a means of school improvement. The recent DFE literature review of Best Practice In Parental Engagement , on which she is first author, takes an overview of the field and suggests practical ways forward for schools.
