Supporting your child's learning and emotional wellbeing

A HeadStart for your child

About Me

Hi, I'm Lorna Head and I am the owner of HeadStart. I provide online group tuition and group wellbeing sessions for children aged between 3 and 11 years.

I am a former headteacher who has a passion for supporting children as individuals. I am a qualified teacher with a specialism in Early Years and the Primary Curriculum. Throughout my 14 years as a teacher, I have been passionate about the development of children's emotional wellbeing and communication, language and literacy (English.) 

I work with children who are home educated, school refusers, children who are currently not attending school due to medical needs and those attending school in sessions after school. I have experience working with children with special educational needs and English as an additional language.

I have an up-to-date DBS available through the DSB Update Service.

But don't just take my word for it, here are what some of the parents had to say...
 "Lorna is fabulous and has been amazing at helping our journey of homeschooling our daughter - thoroughly recommend"
"Thank you Lorna. Imogen was over the moon to get her princess certificate! We look forward to continue seeing the positive impact you are making on Imogen and her enthusiasm for learning."
"Lorna is an incredible teacher and mentor for any child: creative, imaginative, funny, compassionate, and easy to talk to. As well as being a skilled educator, her friendly and down-to-earth nature will ease your child's anxieties (and yours) and support their mental wellbeing and educational development."
"Emma absolutely loved her session-thank you! I would like to block the sessions"
