Staff Profile: Paul Sharma

Ella Bashford

Year 4 Class Teacher (3/4PS)

Paul completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport and Physical Education before gaining his Primary PGCE at the University of Winchester. 

Prior to completing his teaching qualification, Paul worked at a preparatory school in Dorset for two years teaching PE and delivering Maths and English interventions.  Upon gaining his teaching qualification he worked at an International British school in Qatar. Here he undertook various roles that included leading the School Council, coordinating PSHE in KS2 and coaching the KS2 and KS3 rugby teams.

Innovation and creativity are at the core of Paul’s teaching philosophy and he is always looking for different ways to deliver purposeful and real-life learning that engages children and fills them with awe and wonder. Paul is passionate about inclusivity for all learners and having children from a number of different nationality groups in his classes has allowed him to develop his skills with EAL learners. Using different strategies, innovative ICT and receiving specialist EAL training has enabled him to support children who are new to English to become more confident in all aspects of school life. As well as this, Paul believes in instilling a growth mindset in children so they don’t give up when faced with challenge or adversity, whether that be inside or outside the classroom. 

Growing up in a military family, Paul has lived in different locations and this has sparked his love for travel and adventure. He loves all sports, especially rugby and watersports, and he also confesses to enjoying adrenaline sports such as skydiving, bungee jumping, skiing or diving. Paul is a self-confessed “foodie” and loves to cook and try as many different types of food as possible!
