G&M Murphy Learning Ltd
Supporting Merseyside Schools
My staff and I have had the pleasure of working with Ged and Mary for the past few years. Their bespoke programme of support has been instrumental in our school improvement.
Ged and Mary have led an extensive amount of continuous professional development for staff, both in school and at Lace, which is always greatly received and delivered in the most supportive of ways.
Governors have also received a significant amount of training from Ged and Mary and this has ensured that we are always upto date with the most recent of developments from the DfE and Ofsted.
Ged and Mary have provided us extensive support including website compliance, a SEND review, pupil premium, thinking skills and GDPR and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
We look forward to continuing to work with you for many years to come.
Lesley Roach Head Teacher Sacred Heart Primary, Liverpool
“I must thank you both at G&M Murphy Learning Ltd for your unfailing support, advice and guidance over the past four years that I have worked with you. I’m delighted that I decided to work with you at a time when I was looking to take the school in a new direction and offer our staff high quality CPD. I have had superb support from you both in a variety of ways from training sessions on Pupil Premium, Governance, the Quality of Education to bespoke SENDCo support and advice, in-house consultancy and website compliance checks every term. I also appreciate the fact that I am able to pick up the phone at any time and seek advice as and when I need it - which I do so frequently and very much appreciate!”
My best wishes as always,
Lesley Hughes - Head Teacher St Margaret’s Anfield

I would undoubtedly recommend G&M Murphy Learning Ltd. Not only for their fantastic, relevant and up-date CPD but the amazing support with their in-school bespoke training. From Send review and support, pupil premium review, website compliance and much more. Their professionalism, care and knowledge of education today together with their expertise make Ged and Mary the first port of call.

Moira Loftus- Head Teacher St Matthews Catholic Primary Liverpool
I have been fortunate to work with Ged and Mary for a number of years and cannot recommend them highly enough. They have supported me as a Headteacher and as an Executive Headteacher over the past few years and I know my staff have valued the professional advice and support they have given them over a range of topics, primarily SEN, Pupil Premium and Curriculum. Their presentations and thoughts are always detailed with lots of advice along with their warm sense of humour. I will continue to work with them for a long time!
Karl Landrum –Head Teacher St Gerard’s Catholic Primary Widnes
It is my pleasure and honour to offer my unreserved recommendation for G&M Murphy Learning Ltd. As a school, we have worked with both Ged and Mary for little over a year on numerous different topics including: SEND, Pupil Premium and Sports Premium. As a team, they have continued to give us the most accurate and up-to-date knowledge which has been a great help to our continuous, professional development.
Over the school year, we have had many opportunities to work with Ged and Mary: bespoke workshops, in-school health checks and cluster groups. Each and every session has been extremely useful, and all of our staff involved feel as though they have gained a wider understanding of the chosen topic. In addition to their extensive knowledge and expertise, Ged and Mary have been a joy to work with and we will be continuing to work with them in the future.
Once again, thank you.

Ged and Mary are an invaluable source of support, advice and information. They have an excellent understanding of the pressures faced by schools and the services they provide go a long way to alleviating the stresses and strains we face,. I would recommend any sLT to invest in their service.
Sendco and Assistant Head
St Elizabeth’s Catholic Primary, Liverpool
The support and advice we receive from Ged and Mary is truly outstanding. Our SENCO benefits from the regular, up to date CPD which she receives through the local Sefton forum and,Ged and Mary have regularly supported the school with matters relating to SEND, Pupil Premium and Website Compliance. In addition to their extensive knowledge, wisdom and expertise, Ged and Mary are very down to earth, know the struggles schools face and are very real in their advice. We look forward to working with them in the future.
Bedford Primary School Sefton
'Thanks to Ged and Mary, we are well on the way with our curriculum review. We were lucky enough to have Ged and Mary deliver a full day's inset for all staff, which raised awareness as to the practicalities of 'intent, implementation and impact'. We were also introduced to a wealth of relevant and recent research which has informed our curriculum review and pointed us in the right direction. Ged and Mary's down to earth approach was just what we needed. Many thanks - we look forward to booking you again for our next stage of curriculum development.
Viv Ainsworth- Brown Head Teacher Melling Primary Sefton
Their unfailing support and advice has been and continues to be invaluable to ourselves as leaders, teachers and governors. To receive such professional mentoring, delivered with genuine passion and kindness has prepared us enormously for the many educational changes that we continue to face. Guidance on Pupil Premium, website compliance, policies, SEND and the new Ofsted Framework has been extremely relevant and always includes the most up to date information that has kept us so well-informed. It is also the personal touch that has made their service quite unique. (At one point, Ged interrupted his summer holiday to call us with timely advice.)
We unreservedly recommend Ged and Mary and look forward to continuing our working relationship in the future.
