Katie’s current role includes responsibility for: staff appraisal (performance management), teaching and learning, curriculum design, and National Support school work. Before becoming an Assistant Principal, she was an AST in English and this role gave her extensive experience of school to school support. Katie’s aim with school to school support is always to build on a school’s own capacity for sustained improvement, by equipping leaders with the skills to develop and deliver their own improvement strategies. As part of this support she has planned and facilitated conferences for various groups of leaders; these conferences have focussed on successfully using coaching and facilitation skills to bring about sustainable improvements and ultimately helping to grow leadership capacity in others.
