As a teacher with 28 years’ experience (18 at Maidenbower Junior School) I have seen many curriculum changes. I have always been excited about curriculum design and providing a curriculum that is creative, purposeful, challenging and engaging. I have been a curriculum lead for the past seven years, in which I have led the school in creating a topic based, creative curriculum which is driven by key subject areas – geography, history and science. My role is to also develop good and outstanding practice in school. Through the monitoring of our curriculum, I am always keen to talk to children about their learning, look at their work, planning and class displays, sharing ideas with year groups.
I consider myself very fortunate to be part of Maidenbower Junior School where we have always taken great pride in our curriculum design, constantly seeking opportunities to encourage a lifelong love of learning in all our children.
