Key areas of expertise:

I have been a classroom teacher for 6 years and have worked across key stage1 and in the EYFS.  I am the current EYFS leader and Assistant Head and I have developed an expert understanding of the EYFS framework, assessment and monitoring procedures. As leader I support colleagues in developing their own practice and continue to lead them as a team to build an outstanding EYFS provision at Tollgate.

As a current reception teacher I always lead by example and am recognized as an outstanding teacher. With this I am committed to making a difference ensuring the highest of expectations and challenge for every child.

I believe in creating a fun and safe learning environment for children and feel that hooks and creating a sense of awe in lessons are a valuable tool in assisting children to meet their full potential.

I also have experience as Early Literacy leader where I have developed a secure understanding of phonics and have supported teachers in the delivery of quality phonics teaching throughout key stage 1 and early years.  I have been filmed for the Ofsted website teaching early reading and phonics in year 1.

I have a wealth of experience in supporting trainees, NQT’s and colleagues within classroom practice or developing leadership roles.  I am also a trained facilitator on the ITP and OTP.
