In seven years, Yehoshua has made an incredible impact. As the Year 6 teacher, Deputy Head, Head of Key Stage 2, Assessment Lead and interim Head of EYFS, he has also created a Leadership Award, run the School Newspaper, organised the House Captains and Prefects and is still an outstanding classroom practitioner.
He has brought in changes to the delivery of the curriculum that have helped improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of the pupils and is always available to support staff, children and parents. He has fostered a culture of inclusion and has changed the way people think.
As a Jewish School, 30% of the timetable is for Jewish Studies and as such Yehoshua has worked with the department to strengthen the teaching and learning here. In the 2022 Section 48 report, graded ‘Outstanding’, his lessons were praised for strong pupil-teacher relationship, brisk delivery, superb use of tailor-made IT resources, excellent participation by pupils, good use of questioning, appropriate use of reward systems, and targeted praise for participants.
