Example(s) of outreach work undertaken and impact
My teaching experience has been entirely within mixed age classes where my focus has been on ensuring all children receive full and varied learning opportunities according to their individual needs. I have experienced three OFSTED inspections - all of which were judged to be outstanding - and I have worked closely with a variety of LEA representatives, curriculum specialists and outside support agencies. My specialist background is in English and I am a passionate supporter and advocate of our Exciting model of teaching and learning; a model which I have successfully promoted across numerous schools.
I have been responsible for planning and delivering a series of CPD courses to address creativity in the classroom and to promote high standards and expectations for English across all subject areas. This has involved the modelling of how to plan and deliver lessons, incorporating a procedure to ensure the use of a variety of sentence types, and providing clear demonstrations of how this can immediately impact on the quality of children’s writing. The implementation of this has comprised of using a creative, cross curricula approach to provide an all-encompassing experience for children’s learning, whilst simultaneously addressing the requirements and Age Related Expectations of the National Curriculum.
As part of my school to school support work, I have worked with individuals and teams of practitioners to support changes and improvements in practice, particularly through my modelling of Quality first Teaching practice in the classroom and in planning, aiding practitioners to develop a high-quality teaching environment where children are appropriately engaged and challenged. I have supported teachers in improving their moderation of lessons and children’s work, as well as their book scrutiny skills. In addition, I have supported teachers in developing a culture for learning in their settings by focusing on behaviour management and class organization and the provision of rich and meaningful experiences to promote a desire to learn and to succeed.
