Kate Woodward has quickly become a fantastic teacher. Though relatively new to teaching, Kate has led the school in History and Geography during a time of major change, with aplomb. She has also been instrumental in the development of the mastery of maths curriculum. She has also organised an after school club where pupils can discuss social issues in a supportive, encouraging, atmosphere.

Kate is a reflective practitioner and has organised visits to other local schools for her team so that they can all improve their practice, and is already delivering training to more experienced colleagues.

Kate’s colleagues say she is one in a million!
