Valda Varadinek-SkeltonI can offer support with: 

I am an experienced primary school teacher employed within a larger than average academy (approximately 500 pupils) and have taught across the full primary range (Year 1 to Year 6).  Teaching mathematics is my passion. 

As part of my role within my own school I am heavily involved in school self-evaluation and contributing to the school improvement plan.  I am a member of the Standards Team where data is shared and analysed with the focus on raising attainment for all. 

I lead CPD in order to develop teachers’ knowledge and understanding of Mathematics and ensure sessions are current, practical and tailored to meet the needs of the group.  I lead moderation workshops across the year groups in school and personally moderate assessment judgements within school.  A key part of my role involves supporting colleagues with planning for progression in pitch and learning, as well as also ensuring challenge for the More Able Mathematicians.  I am currently supporting NQT’s in all aspects of mathematics and am about to begin the Primary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery Specialist Programme with the NCETM in order to lead the development of mastery teaching in primary schools within the locality.

I am a member of the Local Authority Key Stage 1 moderation team and have frequently undertaken outreach work.

I am an approachable person who will listen, question, coach or offer advice in order to achieve the very best outcomes for the children we work with.  I am flexible and adapt to situations as they arise.  I am a reflective practitioner and I value the importance of being a lifelong learner and am always open to suggestions and new ideas in order to develop my own practice and knowledge in order to better support others.
