Leadership of Curriculum, Maths
North Leamington School

I am a Senior Assistant Headteacher with six years experience of Senior Leadership. Prior to this I was a Head of Mathematics for five years and turned a coasting department into a high achieving, hugely successful department in Solihull.  I have been teaching for sixteen years across six schools including experience in a ‘world-class outstanding comprehensive’ and playing a significant role in helping a previous school improve after a ‘Requires Improvement’ verdict from Ofsted.  I am responsible for progress of Pupil Premium Students at my current school, where they currently achieve above the National Average.

My recent responsibilities have included:

  • Ambassador for vulnerable/PP students.
  • Core Area (Maths and English) strategic development and Line Manager.
  • Lead for use of IRIS technology/AFL across the school to improve Teaching and Learning.

As a Mathematics specialist I am proficient in using and analysing data I have worked with several middle managers offering training on targets, progress calculations, interpreting exam results through Raise on line and navigating Sisra. I have been the SLT data lead for Ofsted inspections.

My work with Pupil Premium students across the school has resulted in a VA of 1027 which is significantly above the National of 1000.
