New Teaching And Learning Roles
We are delighted to announce three new roles which are going to continue to develop and enhance teaching and learning for our pupils.
Julia Lindsay has taken on the new role of Challenge Curriculum Co-ordinator and has responsibility for developing and implementing a creative and inclusive Challenge Curriculum that affords all pupils the opportunity to develop their academic and creative talents. Her primary focus will be the da Vinci Programme and running the EPQ Level 1 and Level 2 for our younger scholars in Year 8 and Year 9. In addition, Mrs Lindsay will be promoting interdisciplinary thinking across all subjects to create dynamic and engaging experiences for our pupils. Please do look out for guest speakers who will be coming into school to enrich the curriculum and for the wider opportunities to enrich pupils’ development.
Jo Evans is taking the helm as our new Whole School Language for Learning Lead and VESPA Co-ordinator. Mrs Evans has responsibility for promoting and developing literacy, oracy and study skills across the curriculum. Many of our pupils already understand the importance of these skills to academic progress, but as a College we want to develop a community in which pupils are excited and enthused by literature by holding promotional events and competitions throughout the year. Alongside this, we will be seeking to develop our work about VESPA study skills.
Sarah Duran has taken on the very relevant role of Digital Learning Leader and has the responsibility of supporting teachers using technology in the classroom. Via the use of laptops, teachers now have many opportunities to make learning more engaging and relevant for the pupils. Sarah will collaborate with our teachers to make sure they know how to use Microsoft tools like Teams and OneNote to enhance the learning experience. She will also make sure our teachers stay up to date with technological advancements such as AI so that our students receive the best education possible in an ever-changing digital world.
These three roles support our ongoing commitment to the very best teaching and learning.
