SLE for Assessment and Data

Sidney Stringer Academy

I am currently working as Vice Principal at Sidney Stringer Academy having previously worked as Lead Learner for Pupil Progress at North Bromsgrove High School where I led on assessment and whole school data.  I am a participant on the NCSL Future Leaders programme.

Whilst at Sidney Stringer Academy I have led on whole school teaching and
learning, moving the quality of teaching from 53% good or better to 82% at the
latest Ofsted inspection (March 2012).  I have also been responsible for organising
personalised whole staff CPD at all levels including the development of the
Leadership Challenge Programme for aspiring Senior Leaders with Masters
Accreditation, Cambridge Education accredited Ofsted lesson observation training for Senior Leadership colleagues, Teaching and Learning specific opt-in sessions and contributions at the Coventry Teaching and Learning Partnership events.

Developing leadership potential in colleagues is of great importance to me and I have gained expertise coaching middle leaders aspiring to senior leadership. I was a mentor during the summer vacation for the 2011 cohort of Future Leaders.  I am also responsible for the continued development of ITT including GTP, Teach First and PGCE and I lead on student voice.
