Cluster Director

­­Peter has been a Fellow of the Primary Science Teaching Trust since 2010. Teaching in a wide variety of schools covering Middle, Junior and Primary Key Stages 1 and 2, school leadership and classroom teaching have always taken on equal importance. He has twice held Deputy and Acting Headships as well as being a Governor of several schools. Being a member of the Association for the Study of Primary Education (ASPE), ­­­National Executive helped maintain and develop a useful perspective. Peter is a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society and is currently serving on the Outreach and Education group where he helps promote and develop microscopy in the Primary sector. Incorporating his interest in succession leadership and science have been important to him and led to the setting up of several Deputy Head groups and a science cluster network in the Salisbury area.

Through becoming part of the PSTT College, the opportunities have been widened. New ventures include running workshops for teachers and children, writing the odd article for publications including Primary Science, In Focus and the School Science Review. Appointed as PSTT Cluster Advisor in 2016 and subsequently Cluster Director, Peter continued in a part-time teaching role at Winterbourne Earls CE Primary School until 2021, and now works solely for the Trust. At present, he particularly enjoys exploring the links and benefits of cross curricular work between Science, Religious Education, Art and Microscopy. Other priorities for the future remain supportive, innovative collaborations and the development of school networks (Clusters).
