After completing my BEd Hons degree at Gloucestershire University in 2010, I worked in inner city Birmingham for 3 years. In the first 3 years of my teaching career I was both class teacher in year 4 and 6, becoming leader of Art and Design across the school; writing the curriculum planning for year groups Foundation - Year 6. In my third year I also took on the responsibility of English leader, target group teaching for 50% of my timetable whilst providing CPD and team teaching training for all staff while we implemented a new English scheme of work.
In 2013 I began working at Bloxham Primary School as Upper Phase Leader. Beginning in Year 6, I am in my 4th year at Bloxham Primary, having taught in year 5 also. I continue to lead the Upper Phase team (years 4 to 6) and find the role more and more rewarding as we continue our learning journey as a unit and whole school. I have also taken a lead on English, within a team of 3.
