Mrs K Harwood – Deputy School Leader

I feel very lucky to be part of the team here at St John’s after teaching for 15 years in Northamptonshire.

Our aim is that children can talk frankly and openly about all their learning, we hope that they are able to reflect on the process as well as on their individual progress. We encourage the children to build up resilience for when the ‘going gets tough’; as it should do if we are to challenge, motivate and help them grow into independent learners.

I am lucky enough to be able to regularly visit all classes, looking through children’s work as well as having the opportunity to talk with them about what they are learning and how they are learning. Working with all the staff here is easy as they are a team of dedicated professionals, always striving to ensure that all children receive the best education possible.

I am excited about what my future career at St John’s has in store and look forward to getting to know as many of the wonderful children, and their families, here at St John’s as I can.
