New Head of English

14 Sep 2016

I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Head of English.  I have a plethora of experience, which I hope to bring to the English Department at Jacques Prevert.  Up until recently I was Deputy Head Teacher at Rutherford House School in Balham.  I helped to open the school three years ago, and was co-responsible for every aspect of opening and running a school, from safeguarding and developing the outside provision to curriculum development and preparing our children for examinations in light of the renewed curriculum.  Prior to this, my career has seen me wear a number of different management and teaching hats.  I worked at Thomas’s Kensington for seven years, leading the English, Humanities and PSHCE departments as well as heading up my year group teams, which I took through two successful outstanding Ofsted inspections.  My career started longer ago than I care to remember in some challenging schools in deprived areas of Leeds and Slough.  These were instrumental in fine tuning my teaching skills and igniting within me a passion for teaching and learning, which has stayed with me throughout my career.

I believe very strongly that every child should be given the support and equipped with the tools to reach their full potential.  I want the skills that the pupils learn in English Lessons at Jacque Prevert to prepare them, not only for their next steps in life, but to foster in them a life-long love of learning. 
In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl (my favourite children’s author) wrote,

“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray
Go throw your TV set away
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall…”

As a big fan of television myself (Grey’s Anatomy is my favourite), I am not suggesting that you rid your house of a TV but I do believe the value of reading cannot be extolled too highly.  The only way to become a really proficient wordsmith and writer is to immerse oneself in good quality fiction.  I am sure your children have spent their summer break with their noses buried in a book, and we at Jacques Prevert look forward to harnessing this love of reading in our lessons.

The team at Jacques Prevert have been incredibly welcoming and I am really looking forward to working with them, and drawing upon their expertise to bring out the very best in your children.  If you see me around Brook Green, please do introduce yourselves to me.  I very much look forward to meeting you all.
