I am the Primary Literacy Lead for Astrea Academy Trust, a trust made up of 27 academies and 2 nurseries. I work with the 18 Primary schools, which are all based in South Yorkshire. I am also an Associate Consultant for the Literacy Tree Primary English Consultancy and am hugely passionate about their text-based approach to teaching all aspects of the literacy curriculum.
I love children’s literature (and what it can teach us all about life) and am interested in the large impact creativity and the arts can have within literacy teaching too.
It is such a privilege to join the Yorkshire UKLA team and I am very much looking forward to working with, and learning from, our members in all aspects of literacy education.
