Working with Sandpiper has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Margaret understands schools, which helped immensely in establishing the brief for our survey. The survey platform was intuitive and easy to use, and the outputs (which were both a report on the survey outcomes, and a comprehensive action plan) were thoughtful, credible and realistic. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sandpiper to my independent school colleagues

With the importance of staff wellbeing never higher on the agenda, Margaret White’s Sandpiper Consulting to help schools to build a culture of care for staff is extremely welcome. Margaret has spent a lifetime working in and reflecting on schools and education, and so has a crystal clear view about the centrality of pastoral care for both staff and pupils. Through a focused Sandpiper survey we have been able to develop a clear picture of how our practices at school have an impact on the wellbeing of our staff. Margaret adds enormous value in the insight of her analysis and her practical suggestions as an experienced former Deputy Head. This has helped us as we work to consolidate our strengths and determine priority areas of focus. Margaret’s independence, authenticity and pragmatism have been invaluable in helping us to develop a care plan for all staff across our Foundation.

I recommend Sandpiper whole-heartedly. Their rapid service allowed us to launch, analyse, feedback and take action on a staff wellbeing survey in a fraction of the time that it would have taken us to complete the work in-house. What is more, the thought and research which had clearly gone into the construction of the questionnaire was impressive. We will be using Sandpiper again next year for a follow-up progress check.

Margaret’s support was invaluable in helping us to find meaningful ways in which to support staff wellbeing. Her experience in education ensured that she understood the tensions, stresses and strains of a busy school and her personal attention to what we needed ensured that solutions were relevant and applicable. Margaret was thorough in her assessment and generous with her time. It was a pleasure working with Margaret and Carol, and their recommendations have had a significantly positive impact on staff wellbeing.

We approached Sandpiper Consulting to aid us in carrying out a staff wellbeing survey. Margaret visited Kent College with a wealth of experience in education, and spent a good amount of time finding out exactly what we required of her. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail assured us that we had made the right decision. Margaret has been professional throughout, has kept in regular contact and has allowed us to gain valuable insight into the wellbeing of our staff members and to move forward with an action plan to create the best possible working environment.
Sandpiper visited our school just before Christmas 2022 and it was so lovely to have Margaret's input - she affirmed so many of our existing procedures and protocols with regards to supporting our staff's well-being. She was also able to offer some advice about areas in which we need to develop. With the many pressures that schools are currently facing, it was hugely beneficial to be 'listened to' by someone who could offer impartial and practical advice.
