Coventry Blue Coat

I am currently an Associate Assistant Head teacher at Blue Coat C of E Academy having previously worked as an AST for 7 years. I lead the inspiring outstanding teacher scheme within school, which focuses on coaching teachers to improve the quality of teaching and learning. I have led a number of school improvement groups within school; these include post sixteen transition and primary liaison.

As an AST I worked with primary and secondary schools across the city to develop the best practice in Science. I have demonstrated good practice for others, advised on the development of new systems and supported middle leaders in the implementation and management of new initiatives. I enjoy the challenge of working with and supporting colleagues and value the opportunity to help provide the best educational experience for all children.

I have supported schools in the development and delivery of key whole school initiatives. I have a proven track record of formulating and implementing strategies that have improved teaching and learning within faculties.

I have worked across the city with NQTs to senior leaders, which has enabled me to develop the skills needed to motivate and empower others. I enjoy working with colleagues to enable them to be the best practitioner they can possibly be. I strongly believe that my role allows me to demonstrate how to be outstanding and to share my passion for Science and education
