Meet Leigh Mustard, our Partner Plus Success Coordinator at Reading Solutions UK.

Partner Plus Success Coordinator

What did you do before you became a Success Coordinator at Reading Solution UK?

I have background insurance, dealing with car and personal injury claims. It gave me a wealth of experience in analysing reports and in administration, which has proved invaluable for providing the full support we give to schools in the Partner Plus Success team.

What attracted you to the education sector?

As a parent of two children in primary school, I wanted to be able to support my children with reading and with what they experience in education.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Reliable, methodical, and loyal.

Tell us more about your role as Success Coordinator Reading Solutions UK?

I provide support to all our schools either via email, phone, or online training.

I create termly school reports to show their pupil progress and assist teachers on how best to support their pupils on the Reading Plus. It is brilliant to see first-hand how quickly and how much children progress on the programme.

What do you enjoy most about working in the Partner Plus Success Team?

Helping schools to get the most out of Reading Plus and being able to support teachers to help their pupils become better readers.

When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy going for walks with my family or sitting in the garden on a nice day reading a book on my kindle.

What piece of tech can you not live without and why?

My phone! It helped me during all the lockdowns – being able to video call, ring or message friends and family was important.

If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?

I would like to see the future so I could see the aftermath of people’s actions before they happen- so I could try and prevent them!
