Congratulations to Vanessa Jones, who has recently been appointed to the Leader Band 1 role as our Writing Coach/Mentor. Vanessa will help lead and drive our huge focus on writing that we are concentrating on with all classes this year. Following the Seven Steps to Writing approach, that all students are being exposed to, Vanessa will act as mentor and coach to all class teachers. Vanessa’s role is for one day per week (on occasion two days) and her teaching responsibilities in 2.5 will be undertaken by Nera Brown each Tuesday. Congratulations Vanessa and good luck.
