I am currently a Deputy Head teacher working at Crawford Primary School in Camberwell. My teaching experience has been primarily in Year 6 and in more recent years teaching target groups to raise levels of attainment. I have coached and modelled focused teaching and learning and am passionate about delivering lessons which are enthusing and stimulating for all learners. Literacy continues to be my primary area of expertise. In my previous role as Lead of Literacy across a pyramid of Primary, Junior and Secondary schools I worked heavily with transition across Key Stages. I facilitated a working party in the process of creating an extended learning journey which focused on a succinct and comprehensive scaffolding of skills.
In my role as Deputy Head I have implemented a whole school behaviour approach involving House Teams and House Points. The initiative has promoted greater whole school collaboration and a drive towards collective values.
