Main Phase: Secondary

Samantha is currently working as Head of English at Ercall Wood Technology College. Prior to this, Samantha was Lead Teacher of English and Literacy at The Priory School alongside her pastoral role as Head of House and has previously worked as Deputy Head of KS3 (pastoral) in Telford. Alongside her love of English, Samantha’s main focus is within teaching and learning, believing that if the simple things are done well, they provide solid foundations for innovative and exciting practice. Samantha has also worked with departments to improve standards in marking and feedback and regularly supports the training of student teachers. At whole-school level, she has supported middle and senior leaders in embedding literacy throughout the curriculum and is involved in the delivery of both whole-school and departmental CPD.

 

Samantha has supported other schools in developing literacy across the curriculum as well as establishing literacy network meetings and engaging with primary schools to develop accurate assessment and preparation for transition. She has been involved with the development and delivery of the Teacher Enrichment Programme for the Salop Teaching School Alliance and has supported this with the knowledge obtained from her MA in Education where she has undertaken significant research into engaging boys in reading, positive behaviour management and embedding literacy across the curriculum. More recently, Samantha has been involved in the set-up of the Shropshire network meeting for ‘Women Leading in Education’ where she has promoted the benefits of collaboration with like-minded practitioners.
