Biography

I have been teaching Science since 2000. I have worked as a Head of Faculty within North Somerset, and as KS4 and KS5 leads. I have led cross curricular teaching & learning groups looking at different aspects of whole school practice such as AfL and Differentiation. I have supported colleagues with management roles, to help them make effective use of assessment data to plan, evaluate and implement strategies for improving attainment. I have carried out primary school visits and worked with groups of vulnerable Year 6 students to aid transition.

I have worked extensively with new teachers, ITT students and their mentors, and have also provided coaching for colleagues who are experiencing difficulties in time behaviour, progress and other teaching and learning issues. I have worked closely with colleagues to introduce different assessment models which help students learn from feedback. I am committed to achieving excellent outcomes for all students. I passionately believe that a collaborative and supportive approach to improving teaching and learning is the best way to raise standards.
