Jo is currently a senior teacher at Leeming and Londondery Primary School where she is subject leader for English and PE. She leads both subjects with passion and shares her experience and expertise with other leaders. Jo also supports the delivery of PE CPD for the Local Authority where she works with PE leaders and class teachers to develop the teaching of PE and raise awareness of how this can have a positive impact on the wider curriculum.
Throughout her career, she has gained vast experience of teaching in Key Stage One and Two by teaching all of the age ranges and has an in-depth knowledge of teaching mixed age classes.
Jo was a former AST in ITT working successfully with both graduate and undergraduate trainees. Her SLE role in ITT encompasses supporting trainees and NQT’s to become outstanding practitioners by sharing outstanding practise. Jo works closely with trainees, school staff and, most importantly the pupils, ensuring all children are taught an enriched fulfilling curriculum in which they can reach their potential by excellent practitioners.
Her belief is that being a Senior Leader in Education opens doors to inspire and enthuse others to have a significant impact on the children in our care.
