As Vice Principal, I have overall responsibility for teaching and learning, staff training and quality assurance. I am also a PE teacher.
My belief is that teaching and learning is the single most important thing we do. Every child is entitled to a high quality education and here at Cathedral we strive to ensure that all students leave our academy with the character, skills and qualifications to make a positive contribution in our world.
Improving the quality of teaching and learning is a critical part of my role, and I believe that everyone – including staff – need to be continuously learning. Our staff can therefore access excellent professional development and coaching opportunities and I work to oversee staff training, so that staff are up-to-date with current developments and research. This ultimately leads to improved outcomes for our students.
