A practical English teacher whose blog charts his thoughts on education, literacy, English teaching and the funny and strange things that happen to him as a teacher.  He’s also a literacy co-ordinator who is proud to say he is very pushy when dealing with Ofsted and inspectors, but not his mum.

Keven Bartle
Leadership

As an English and Sociology teacher for 18 years and a senior leader for 8 of those I have worked in challenging schools from Hull to Hemel Hempstead to Harrow (if you’re in an authority beginning with H you may be next on my list, especially if it’s Honolulu).  I love both parts of my job and never fail to remind myself that great outcomes for great students come mainly because great leaders listen to and trust in the judgments of their great teachers.  Pedagogy is my passion and everything I do aims to give that passion a purpose.
