Zoe Leddy

Location

Lincolnshire 

Experience

Still being in the early stages of my teaching career, I have a real passion for experimenting with, and implementing, various pedagogies and approaches within my curriculum teaching of PE. At the core of my ’teaching philosophy’ I focus on modernised approaches to physical education whereby pupils are at the centre of their learning and passion for the subject is created through engaging and motivating approaches to learning (e.g. gamification, independent learning). Alongside this, I have a keen interest in cognitive psychology and how to create ‘productive learners’ which has subsequently led to me experimenting with various AfL strategies/methods focused around interleaving and low-stake retrieval practice within my teaching.

Strengths

– Modern approaches to teaching PE (e.g. gamification)
– Practical and active approaches to learning in the classroom (theory-based content)
– AfL strategies and resources for GCSE and A-Level centred around low-stake retrieval practice.

Melissa Campbell

Location

Blackpool, North West

Experience

I qualified as a PE teacher in 2007 and secured my first full time post at the school I am still at now, dedicated or crazy, you decide! During my teaching experience, I have taken on various opportunities which have supported me into secure the current role I am in now as curriculum leader of PE. Since being appointed CAL of PE I have made significant improvements and changes to the PE curriculum offer in favour of our students, who often come from disadvantaged backgrounds. We have moved to study OCR Cambridge Nationals Sports Studies, which so far has seen a positive impact on data and student engagement. As well as this offering, AQA GCSE PE results have gone from strength to strength with our most recent results being 93% at 4+. This I believe is through our extensive teaching and learning focus as well as rigorous analysis of live data. We also offer an extensive list of sporting activities not only on the curriculum but which form part of the extra-curricular programme, providing breadth and depth to our curriculum.

Strengths

I believe my strengths lie in teaching and learning, analysis of data and behaviour management. I have confidence in providing all of my students with stretch and challenge as well as models and scaffolding techniques to provide support and chance of success. The relationships I have with my students are positive, providing a consistent approach and taking an interest in the child beyond the classroom providing a holistic approach. However, students know the boundaries when in my lessons and that school policies are adhered to and therefore, this is reflected in the high standards and expectations promoted.

Paige Waldron

Location

Faversham, Kent

Experience

After obtaining a first class degree (BA Hons, Physical Education) and a PGCE at the University of Brighton I secured a job in a grammar school in Kent. I am currently in my second year of teaching (2019/2020). I teach girls PE (including dance), GCSE PE (Edexcel), A Level (AQA) and PSHE. I hold no responsibilities at school and devote all my time to ensuring I am setting myself up to be a knowledgeable, passionate, outstanding teacher. I believe this is vital because a good leader is formed from a good teacher! (I think it is important to note, one day, when the time is right, I hope to hold a responsibility!!)

Strengths

-Core lessons: I have written SOW’s, explored appropriate modes of delivery,  brought new sports onto our curriculum (cheerleading) and developed others (dance).

– GCSE: I have worked so hard on both students’ ability to recall knowledge (through various recall activities) but also applying it to the 9 marker. On top of exploring exciting, engaging modes of delivery.

-A level: I specialise in ONE area (content listed below) and only teach year 12 (but not AS we deliver only the full A level). I have written the course outlines, curriculum maps, assessment points as a result of recently changing exam boards.

-Extra curricular: I have set up and delivered a school dance show (soon to be a district dance show- fingers crossed), have a cheerleading and trampolining team that compete: on top of district sports.

…and for all those asking, yes I am also a fitness instructor!…

– Trampolining

-A level (information processing, sport and society, skill acquisition)

-GCSE application of knowledge (9 marker)
