Alice

 

EYFS

 

Alice is an Assistant Headteacher of a school in Tower Hamlets, working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds who enter EYFS below age related expectation. She has responsibility for Early Years and Phonics, and her team has ensured that the children make accelerated progress which has resulted in 72% of children achieving a Good Level of Development and 88% of children achieving a pass in the Phonics Screening Check. Alice has managed the establishment and delivery of a well-planned, coherent curriculum which ensured that teaching, learning and assessment were highly effective. This was recognised in a recent Ofsted.  Ofsted report July 2018
“From lower starting points than are typical for their age, children make strong progress in their early reading and writing skills so that, by the end of the Reception Year, standards of reading and writing are at or above the national average.”
Alice is also part of the Tower Hamlets EYFS moderation team and has worked with other school leaders and teachers to ensure accurate judgements and assessments.
