Sian Roberts-Commons – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: R.E

I have been Deputy Head of R.E for 3 years. In that time I have been in charge of KS4 and the running of the GCSE. Our results have improved over this period, in particular boys’ achievement which was a focus for the Department.

I have used data tracking in order to predict and track achievement and this enabled the Department to make informed decisions within school.

I have played a key role in developing new Schemes of Work to give students a more experiential experience of R.E and this has seen increased numbers of students opting to take the subject after KS3.

I have previously helped with NQT training and these teachers have gone onto to receive outstanding judgements from Ofsted.

I am passionate about the subject of R.E. and its development and how it equips students with the necessary skills needed to progress in work or higher education.
