Area of Specialism: Mathematics, Assessment, PE, Support for the more able, Initial teacher training (ITT) and newly qualified teacher (NQT) development.
I have recently joined the teaching team at St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School as the deputy headteacher after spending the last 10 years at Fulwood and Cadley Primary School where I took on many different roles including key stage 2 leader, assistant headteacher, mathematics leader, assessment leader, NQT mentor, CPD leader and year 6 teacher.
I am passionate about ensuring all pupils develop a growth mindset as this supports a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for lifelong success and is the path to ‘mastery’. Research evidence shows that encouraging a growth mindset and belief that everyone can do mathematics, has a significant effect on achievement.
I am excited about sharing my passion, experiences and expertise within the Catholic Teaching Alliance.
