Current Position: Deputy Head Teacher
Designation 1: Specialist Leader of Education
Main Phase: Primary
I have been working as a primary school teacher since 2003. During this time I have taken on several leadership responsibilities and was recently appointed as Deputy Head teacher (in a job share capacity). I have experience of teaching across the entire primary age range and for the past four years I have had responsibility for leading both Literacy and Early Years. Whilst leading these areas I have successfully driven a range of improvements and standards have increased. I was appointed as an SLE in 2O12. In this capacity, and through additional school to school partnership work, I have had the opportunity to support staff from a diverse range of primary schools. My support work has taken a variety of forms including; coaching sessions with middle leaders, demonstration lessons, team teaching, leading staff meetings and working with Senior Leadership Teams on key policies and action plans.
