Area of Expertise: Coaching and Literacy
I have been a teacher at Springhill for eight years. During this time, I have always taught in UKS2 and have been Year Leader for both years 5 and 6. For the past two years, I have held the position of Year Leader in Year 6, overseeing three classes.
Responsibilities have included identifying under-achieving and attaining pupils and putting interventions in place to ensure progress. I also compile case studies for these children and those who are showing accelerated progress .
One of my main roles is working with colleagues in a ‘coaching’ capacity to promote teaching and learning within the classroom across writing, reading and numeracy.
Furthermore, I have also mentored NQTs and developed a programme for NQT induction within our school.
Prior to my appointment as an SLE, I ‘coached’ a Year 6 leader in another school to raise standards across the curriculum. To ensure this, we made some changes to the daily timetable and structure of lessons. Teaching and learning was also improved due to demonstration lessons, planning sessions and discussions. I have also previously worked as a Lead Learner for Southampton Local Authority.
