SLE for CPD
I am the Deputy Headteacher at Hearsall Community Primary School. I have had teaching experience across all three key stages within Primary and my key areas of specialism are CPD, ITT and NQTs.
I am incredibly passionate about CPD and developing professional learning communities within schools. It is essential to ensure that all groups of staff are receiving appropriate, high quality, professional opportunities to impact successfully upon teaching and learning. Monitoring and measuring CPD impact are also hugely important.
Coaching and mentoring is also a key area of strength. I have successfully mentored NQTs and GTP trainees designing personalised programmes of support. I have also worked collaboratively with the Local Authority in developing and leading aspects of the NQT Induction programme. I firmly believe that a strong investment in teachers early on in their careers can really contribute towards developing future good and outstanding practice which ultimately impacts heavily on outcomes for children.
It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with children and teachers and my personal ethos is centred around building positive relationships with colleagues and pupils to make a difference.
