SLE Specialism: English

In her role as an English and Literacy Specialist, Rebecca provides staff with guidance and solutions when facing the literacy challenges of their varying contexts. She is committed to ensuring that the importance of literacy as the key to lifelong success is embedded at every level of the school community, and that all stakeholders appreciate their vital role in promoting and developing the literacy skills of the students.

Rebecca joins the AET with over ten years of experience as a highly successful English teacher of KS3, 4 and 5 - leading her to the role of AST. Her whole school roles have included Literacy Across the Curriculum Co–Ordinator and Manager of AR – both of which have allowed her to develop a multitude of programmes and resources that offer support, promote development and carefully monitor the literacy skills of students. Through her recent work with the SSAT as Lead Practitioner she has had the opportunity to share her outstanding Literacy practice on a national basis and nurture the development of Literacy within more challenging schools. In addition she has worked externally as an examiner for KS3 SATs and the new GCSE AQA specification which has consolidated and extended her knowledge of assessment in English.
