Hello Everyone. I am a teaching headteacher of a 500 pupil middle school in the beautiful county of Dorset. I have been a resource creator on the TES for well over 8 years and was nominated for a TES Resource Creator of the Year Award a few years ago. Most of my resources are based on the curriculum areas of Science and/or Religious Education. There are also a few assemblies and the occasional maths resource as well. I hope that these prove useful and will most importantly save you time.
