I am an enthusiastic teacher, having taught Primary Education since 2014. I have a diverse range of experience teaching in different primary settings and leading core subjects such as English and Maths. I currently work as a Year 6 teacher and Year group Leader. I have experience teaching both KS1 and KS2, however much of my experience has been in upper KS2. This has really helped to develop my understanding of statutory assessment in Primary education. Alongside this, I have been an external moderator (KS2 Writing) for the DfE, and a member of the Sussex Maths Hub which has both helped to keep my knowledge and understanding of current trends, pedagogy and assessment up to date so that my pupils are always best prepared to reach their full potential.
