Since starting her teaching career in 2013, Melissa has taught across all key stages. She proudly led her EYFS team at Mayplace Primary School to secure an outstanding judgement from Ofsted in June 2017. Since then she has led both Key Stage One and Lower Key Stage Two. Melissa has experience in being a staff governor as well as leading fundraising and computing in schools. She is currently leading Lower Key Stage Two and teaching in Year Five at Mayplace Primary School. Melissa has worked as a PFT Associate for the past four years.
During the 2015-2016 academic year, she led an associate project with a fellow colleague to embed British Values within the schools in the Trust. One of the great successes of the project was the Cross-Trust debate at the end of the school year where children across the schools in Years Five and Six debated current worldwide issues in the news.
For the past three academic years, she led the Outstanding Progress Pathway which then became the Good to Great Pathway along with another associate. This has been an extremely rewarding opportunity that has allowed Melissa to work with teachers across all schools within the trust and enabled them to further develop and improve their own teaching skills. Melissa is looking forward to continuing the success of the Good to Great pathway this academic year.
