Teaching is my passion.
Recently, after a decade of teaching, I have come out of the classroom as a non-teaching Deputy Head of a two-form entry Islamic school in inner city Derby. A completely new challenge. One that I’m relishing.
After just 22 days in the job, we had “The Call”…The call no one wants in the second summer half term – Ofsted. A full Section 5 inspection. 22 days in! All I can say is that it proved a baptism of fire, but gave me and the new Head Teacher (also on day 22!) a great baseline for our future improvement.
As we embark on our new journey together, along with a team of dedicated teachers and TAs, I need somewhere to collect my thoughts and in the spirit of sharing, a blog seems the perfect place.
