What We Do

Anna Boorer - SLE

I have 16 years of teaching experience across all key stages, primarily at West Cliff Primary School, where I am EYFS leader for Nursery and Reception. I specialise in Early Years and the planning and delivery of a creative curriculum, and I am a trained student- teacher mentor. In addition, I am an Early-Years moderator and can also deliver the Sttew scale in Early Years. I have been involved in school to school support and the planning and delivery of CPD courses in the area, and I am currently undertaking the Early Years SENCO training. Following extensive consultations with colleagues- and visiting many Early Years settings - I have recently been involved in establishing a nursery in the school. I know that no two Early Years settings are the same, and that no single system can be directly taken from one establishment to another. I am now adept at modeling how to adopt and personalize systems to suit any setting.

Areas of Expertise

  • Experienced classroom practitioner
  • Teaching across all key stages
  • Early years provision and teaching, mentoring and moderating
  • Quality First Teaching
  • Creative Curriculum
  • Phonics
  • Music
  • Lesson planning

Examples of Outreach work undertaken and Impact

I have worked in Early Years for over 6 years, developing the Reception class to ensure that we are an integral part of the school.

In this time, I developed an assessment system that linked with the whole school, enabling colleagues to easily understand the curriculum and assessment in Early Years. In addition, I developed planning formats and strategies to clearly show how we could change our provision to respond to the children’s needs.

To promote the ‘parents-as-partners’ project, I introduced an on-line learning journey, which I now manage for the whole unit; this has greatly increased interactions between home and school and contributes greatly to our evidence base.

Following extensive research and consultation, I have recently helped establish our Nursery within the school, ensuring that it is a fluent and consistent EYFS setting, ranging from 2 year olds until the end of Reception.

I now manage and lead CPD with all staff across the whole setting, which includes planning, assessment and appropriate management of the different age groups.

I’ve been messaged by an senior leader in a small school who is looking to connect with other small school leaders so she can seek advice on roles and time management. Would there be anyone willing to connect to create a little network of support?
