Mrs Britt Brookebb_sle

SLE specialism: English
School: Avenue Primary School

Current role

I currently work at Avenue Primary School as an Assistant Head Teacher (appointed from September 2012) and as director of the teaching school since September 2013. My role involves co-ordinating all ITT for our school and the School Direct programme for the Sutton Primary Teaching School Alliance. In addition, I co-ordinate CPD for the teaching school alliance and oversea the mentoring of our NQTs. My responsibilities also include observations of teaching and learning across the school.

I am a trained facilitator for the Outstanding and Improving Teacher Programmes through OLEVI (The International Centre for Leadership in Teaching and Learning) which we run at Avenue Primary School or at specific schools on request and also in partnership with the Sutton Secondary Teaching School Alliance. I am also involved in providing INSET for schools, for example, on Outstanding Teaching and Learning. I have supported another school in Sutton with planning and teaching, working in Years 4 and 6.

Summary of previous experience

I have previously held the post of Phase Co-ordinator for Years 2 and 3 and have co-ordinated literacy and science at Avenue Primary School over the ten years since I was appointed at the school.

Before this, I worked at Tweeddale Junior School for ten years, first as a class teacher in all year groups, co-ordinating history and science, then as year group leader and literacy co-ordinator. During my second year of teaching, the school was placed in ‘Special Measures’ and I eventually worked as part of the Leadership Team. During this time, the school was removed from the Special Measures category.
