Key areas of expertise:

I have been a classroom teacher for 5 years and have worked across both key stages. During this time I have worked in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 leading these year groups and I have developed a deep understanding of the curriculum, assessment and monitoring procedures.  As a leader I support colleagues including students, NQTs and experienced teachers in developing their own practice across the key stages. I have worked in both urban and rural schools including mixed year group classes. I always lead by example and I am committed to making a difference, ensuring the highest of expectations and challenge for every child.

I also have experience as part of the Literacy team leading phonics and intervention work for Literacy. Within my teaching career I have led Physical Education and Science at Tollgate. Through these roles I have developed a secure understanding of Phonics, Literacy, Numeracy and Science and have supported teachers in the delivery and planning of high quality lessons across the school.  Currently I lead Year 1 and I am the lead Closing the Gap teacher for the Teaching Alliance. I track the data of all children who receive Pupil Premium funding and implement strategies with class teachers to ensure continued progress.

I have a wealth of experience in supporting trainees, NQT’s and colleagues within classroom practice or developing leadership roles. I love supporting colleagues and have a proven track record of outstanding results.
