· Is quick to praise and slow to criticise

· Is innovative and highly motivated to inspire, enthuse, engage and challenge children.

· Is proven to have high expectations for behaviour, achievement and progress, with a real commitment to inclusion.

· Is dedicated to their own development and that of others, with a drive to ensure all children achieve their full potential
