I am first and foremost a classroom teacher specialising in Religious Studies, Moral Ethics and Philosophy. However I also work as an assistant head teacher with responsibility for whole school teaching and learning. Although most of my time is spent on management and systems it’s important that I don’t forget that quality lessons are the best possible way to ensure students make the progress they deserve. I hope you enjoy my resources and that they save you some time.
