Life is busy when you’re a Reception teacher and deputy head, as Tracey Brand explains
Reception teacher and deputy head
I have been a Reception teacher for 15 years and have always loved working with children. As the deputy headteacher, I am responsible for the Foundation stage and Key Stage 1, with an overview of all practices throughout the school. I have approximately three hours a week ‘non-contact’ time to carry out my deputy headteacher’s role. I am also responsible for personal, social, health and citizenship education throughout the school. I am a teacher governor too, which I see as a crucial role in ensuring the successful leadership of a primary school. I am also an assessor for higher level teaching assistants.
