SLE for Science and Maths - Andy Junkison
Andy is a successful leader with a strong track record of school improvement at Head of Department and Executive Head of Faculty level. He has significant experience in improving results working with other Heads of Department to significantly raise attainment, recently raising a department from sig- in the majority of categories to sig+ in all significant RAISE online groups, and coaching staff to improve long term approaches and therefore results.
Andy has a clear understanding of 'outstanding' and uses this to support and challenge teaching and learning practices across the School, supporting staff to use individual strengths and aptitudes to benefit the whole department. He encourages staff to share good practice to ensure that all pupils benefit from staff development and uses data analysis and focused learning walks, amongst other strategies, to improve the quality of teaching.
In his previous role Andy led a science department. During his tenure he led a large and highly successful team that delivered excellent exam performance across the science curriculum. Andy ensured that there was a clear direction for colleagues that focussed on developing new and innovative teaching and learning techniques.
Andy keeps up to date with current initiatives and is currently completing his NPQSL.
