Key areas of expertise:
I am an experienced inclusion manger and have worked as an advisory teacher specialising in autism. My areas of expertise are in inclusion management and the effective inclusion of children with autism.
I have worked in the field of autism for more than ten years and studied ASD at post graduated level. I have led on whole school initiatives and we successfully became the first mainstream school to be accredited by the national autistic society. I have also worked as a team member for the NAS when they are reviewing other schools practice.
As an inclusion manager at Tollgate primary school I have extensive experience in leading and managing support staff including learning mentors, family support workers and teaching assistants. The development training and effective deployment of staffing has a huge impact on practice and outcomes.
Over time I have developed a range of effective management tools. Theses include provision mapping, planning for intervention, training packages for staff and curriculum development.
My strengths include:
- approachable, supportive and hardworking
- recognition of people’s strengths and help to build upon them.
- good working knowledge of good inclusive practice.
- communicate high expectations for all children
- a range of practical tips that can impact on practice quickly.
