Areas of expertise

Kym Scott heads up the Early Years Advisory Team in the London Borough of Lewisham, where she has been a School Improvement Advisor for Early Years for 15 years, following a successful teaching and senior leadership career in London schools. Her advisory role has enabled her to work closely with many schools and settings in a variety of circumstances and she has a proven track record of helping leaders to raise the quality of their EYFS provision and improve outcomes for children. Lewisham has recently been named as one of the top places in the country for child development due to how well children in the borough achieve at the end of Reception.

As well as contributing articles for various early years journals, Kym has co-authored a number of books including the widely acclaimed publication 'A Place to Learn' which has sold extensively both in this country and overseas. Kym has recently carried out work for the Department for Education in relation to the EYFS Profile and has sat on working parties related to this. She is also involved in two All Party Parliamentary Groups; those for Conception to Age Two, and for Parents and Families.

She has appeared in a variety of short educational and parenting films, for Teachers TV, Ladybird books and and has advised film companies on educational content.  

In 2014 she was commissioned by a Children’s Centre Board to research, write and appear in ‘The Power of Parents,’ a short film for parents focusing on the importance of tuning into babies.

Kym has provided consultancy, training, workshops and keynote speeches across the country on a number of subjects related to early years, but is especially passionate about children leading their own learning.
