SPECIALIST LEADER OF EDUCATION (SLE)
Name: Stephanie Cheetham
Specialism/s: Maths and Early Years
Main teaching Phase: KS1 and EYFS
Since completing my PGCE in Primary Education, I have enjoyed teaching across Key Stage 1 and am now based in Reception. Through my six years of teaching, I have been fortunate to lead a range of subjects here at All Saints, which have included Modern Foreign Languages, Music and for the past three years, Maths. I am also now in my third year as Phase Leader for KS1 and EYFS.
As part of my role as Maths Subject Leader I also achieved the NPQML middle leader qualification which allowed me to develop my skills of leading change within my own setting. I regularly support staff to develop their own practice whilst building confidence and creativity within both my Phase and Maths.
Since being designated as an SLE by 5 Wells Teaching School, for Maths, I have supported in the development and leading of the Early Years Network meetings. I have enjoyed supporting staff, student teachers and NQTs within my own setting and am now dedicated to helping to develop positive and nurturing relationships with other practitioners to ensure they can develop their own practice. This will also give me the fantastic opportunity to develop my own practice.
