Garath Rawson - Science, Teaching and Learning, Curriculum and Data - School Leader, Meden School

I am currently a School Leader at Meden School working for the Tourch Academy Trust. My primary role is to ensure behaviour and safeguarding procedures are consistently implemented in order to create an outstanding climate for learning.

Previously Garath worked for 5 years at Outwood Academy Valley; initially as Head of Faculty and Associate Assistant Principal and later as Assistant Principal. His whole school responsibilities included; transition and curriculum, which involved managing the Key Stage 4 options process and timetabling.

Garath believes that teaching and learning is facilitated by stimulating and engaging lessons, promoted through a blend collaborative learning structures and independent learning. At a department and whole school level he has been involved in curriculum design with a focus on developing teaching and learning in science and developing a curriculum that all students can access and strive to achieve their full potential.
