She has been on the Expert Reference Group of the Autism Education Trust (AET) since its inception and was the Interim Chair of Hertfordshire's All-Age Autism Partnership Board from April 2015- March 2016.

Paul attends regular meetings with Ofsted and the DfE, most recently in connection with how pupils with SEND are to be assessed under the new national curriculum, and the Independent review of standards for teaching assistants.
