I have been working in schools since 2002 and I am passionate about making teaching and learning more effective. As a senior leader I have led whole school teaching and learning, behaviour, pastoral care and safeguarding. My current role is as Senior Assistant Principal at Kingswood Secondary Academy in Northamptonshire leading strategies to improve outcomes for disadvantaged students, as well as pastoral care. In my previous role as leader of teaching and learning I organised and led three T&L conferences including #TeachCon and I create and share ideas for schools via the “LessonToolbox” blog and resources. My @LessonToolbox twitter feed has over 23K followers and I regularly speak at conferences or lead CPD on areas such as assessment and feedback, coaching to improve teaching and learning, engaging students for learning, safeguarding, and behaviour management. I am also a level 2 Judo coach training primary and secondary age children as well as adults.
