Andrew Catterall – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: Teaching & Learning, CPD and Assessment.

Within the school that I am situated in, I have had responsibility for the development of middle leadership through a dedicated CPD programme. This has developed a wide secondary school inset programme, based on action research to develop teaching and learning within school assessment, along with marking and quality assurance systems.

(2010-2012) Previously, I was an Assistant Headteacher in a school (Teaching, Learning and Progress) due to an Ofsted category of special measures. I developed the teaching and learning strategy for the school which resulted in 65% of lessons being judged as good or better and an overall Ofsted judgement of ‘Good’ for teaching and learning in November 2011.
