Staff Profile: Siobhan Turner

Siobhan Turner

Year 3 Class Teacher (3/4ST)

After graduating with a BA Honours in Performance, Siobhan completed her Primary PGCE at the University of Newcastle-upon Tyne. Once qualified, Siobhan worked in Tower Hamlets. During her time here, she successfully led workshops for parents, introduced ‘Talk for Writing’ and behaviour management strategies to her team, and took part in the ‘Love Latin’ initiative, helping KS1 pupils develop an understanding of language and its origins.

Since working internationally, Siobhan has collaborated with different members of staff across KS1 and KS2, creating assessment programmes. At her previous school, she was the Thematic Lead, attending training on teaching and assessment of the IPC, leading  workshops and  training sessions  for  the  primary  department,  as well as collaborating with the STEAM department. 

Siobhan has taught children with EAL in the UK and overseas, in both international and bilingual schools, also helping establish a bilingual curriculum during her time in Shanghai.

Always keen to use her degree skills, Siobhan believes drama and verbal rehearsal is key to language development and engagement in the classroom. As part of her EAL teaching philosophy,she encourages the support of mother-tongue language to progress language-learning development. Siobhan believes that, in order for a child to be successful, they need to feel confident and happy at school. Her classroom is a safe place where children feel supported and keen to learn, celebrating mistakes and achievements together.
