Siobhan Walker

Year 5 Class Teacher, 5SW (Full Time)

 

After graduating with a BA Honours in Performance, Siobhan completed her Primary PGCE at the University of Newcastle-upon Tyne. Once qualified as a teacher, Siobhan worked in Tower Hamlets in East London. During her time there, 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. Siobhan has taught children in the UK and overseas, in both international and bilingual schools, also helping establish a bilingual curriculum during her time in Shanghai.

Since working internationally, Siobhan has collaborated with different members of staff across KS1 and KS2, creating assessment pro-forma for the IPC, maths and English curriculums.

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 worked closely across the Primary year groups to ensure smooth transitioning, as students moved into their new year groups at the end of the academic year, as well as inputting on changes to reporting and parent conferences.

Always keen to use her degree skills, Siobhan believes drama and verbal rehearsal is key to development and engagement in the classroom. As part of her teaching philosophy, 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.

In her spare time, Siobhan enjoys hiking and reading. She is a theatre enthusiast and tries to not miss a musical when it tours in Singapore.
