This involved embedding the New Curriculum and supporting staff in changing their planning and carrying out book and planning scans, learning walks, leading courses for staff within and outside the Borough, modelling lessons, team teaching, moderating writing, observing and supporting the teaching of English including Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation.

Previous to becoming the English Leader I led ICT for 6 years in a school outside the Borough, which included training staff, assessment, planning and leading parent workshops.
