Below are some of the projects I am currently working on with an aim to provide a deeper understanding into certain areas but also to provide empower more people through technology.

When I first started at All Saints they had a very dated and simple phone system which did the job but was showing its age. A decision was made to look for a new and better system. After 3 months of meeting and testing systems we settled on a hosted VoIP system with PolyCom VX411 handsets. The system would run over the schools dedicated leased fibre connection which then provided a new challenge of what happens if the internet connection fails.
Since October 2019 I have been project managing and implementing a new cloud based platform for a 2 form entry primary school that I currently work at. This project has been the largest technology/infrastructure change that I have ever had to do. The migration of all staff, pupils, data and devices over to a fully cloud based platform was the goal.

I have recently retained my Microsoft MIE Trainer certification for a second year running, enabling me to continue leading the way as a strong advocate for cloud based educational learning. Working with over 180+ schools/trusts nationally, delivering workshops and training sessions to school’s staff from all departments from CEO’s to Business Managers, Head of Departments to teaching assistants and technical staff. Being able to showcase what is truly possible with the Microsoft365 platform without having to spend huge amounts on external companies to support you on your journey.
Currently taking a technical lead on our new build which will be used for teacher & learning. I am currently looking at this project from a network standpoint but also helping the business manager with the management of the project. Currently outlining all of the items that will be required to build the network, join to our existing domain and looking at the tender process.
As part of the requirements from the DFE to be able to provide home learning for all students when their bubbles close or they are self isolating we have made a massive move to build and create custom virtual classrooms with Microsoft Teams.
More information coming soon….
