Leadership of curriculum
SLE designated specialism: Leadership of Curriculum
Portfolio of experience, skills, knowledge.
Principal at Netherhall School, Cambridge, I previously worked as Deputy Principal at Bottisham Village College from 2005. I led the development of the curriculum and ICT infrastructure, our head of faculty team and writing the school timetable using NT6. Before that I worked as an Advanced Skills Teacher in Science with special interest in the neuroscience of learning.
A particular interest of mine is the use of ICT systems to monitor and respond to data on student progress. This has led to the development of an in-house data system, ‘The Register,’ which is now being rolled out to other schools.
I have also supported schools through analysis of their timetables and curriculum structures, making recommendations for developing practice. I have also shared with practitioners in other schools, different models of self-evaluation and the development of a whole-school strategy plan.
