I first started teaching as an English teacher in 2009 at Garibaldi College in Mansfield. During my 6 years at the school I helped support the school move from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘outstanding achievement’. In 2015 I successfully completed the ‘National SENCO Award and the specialist CPT3A award for Access Arrangements.
I joined Alfreton Grange in January 2016 as a Lead Practitioner in English and as part of the leadership team, we raised achievement to secure outstanding results. I was appointed Assistant Head – Pastoral in September 2016 (David Nieper Academy) and have been working tirelessly with my fantastic team to improve SEN support, behaviour, attendance and pastoral care.
I am available to support schools with improving SEN support, inclusive working and tracking student attendance and behaviour by groups – identifying gaps. As well as this, I am happy to assist with any issues relating to the English curriculum and teaching.
