I have been a teacher at St Peter in Thanet CE Junior School for 16 years, where I am the science and wider curriculum lead. We are currently on our PSQM journey where we hope to achieve ‘outreach’, and we have just joined an Ogden Trust partnership. I have an interest in science, history and technology and always push to raise the profile of these subjects in my current position. I feel it is important for children to see the ‘point’ of the subjects that they learn and since winning a PSTA award, I have set out to make sure that the children can see and understand how the science that they learn can be used later in life. I often provide opportunities for children to meet people in the industry and to be inspired by their work.
