I have been teaching for 30 years. Ten of those years were as a headteacher in a primary school, and 15 as SENCo. I started off with a PhD in biochemistry and transferred to primary teaching. I have qualifications in SEN and in teaching dyslexic pupils. For the past 3 years I have been a learning support teacher in the Netherlands. What I offer here are resources that I wish I had at an earlier date. I hope they are useful.
