Year 1 Reading Recovery Teacher
||I have been a primary teacher for 19 years and been a successful literacy coordinator in 3 different schools. I am currently the Director of Teaching and Learning at Churchend School, an outstanding academy in Reading. I have a proven track record of implementing whole school programmes with demonstrable results. I regularly provides INSET training for my own school, and leaders at all levels in many schools across the South East.
I am a Specialist Leader of Education(SLE) and regularly supports schools and leaders as part of this role. I am able to provide school training and support on teaching and learning, developing writing, implementing a whole school reading approach, target setting, intervention and pupil premium.
A Section 8 report of a school I recently supported stated:
‘Standards in reading are high across the school. The carefully structured teaching of reading from the Reception class onwards means pupils get off to a good start and many can read accurately and answer questions about their books by the end of Year 1. Pupils make good progress over time and by age 11 they are about 10 months ahead of pupils of the same age.’ HMI 3rd July 2014
‘Changes to the way writing is taught have had a big impact on standards this school year. In most classes, pupils have made big steps forward to reach levels above those expected for their age.’ HMI July 2014
