My name is Becky Knight and I am a SLE currently taking a gap year from full time teaching. I am affiliated to Fairfields TSA and Inspire TSA in Northamptonshire.
My field of expertise is Pupil Premium and Closing the Gap, Secondary English (KS3,KS4, KS5), Attendance, English as an Additional Language and Attachment Awareness.
Having taught in a variety of schools over nineteen years, two previously being in ‘Special Measures’, my belief as Inclusion Specialist Leader of Education is that all students should have access to the curriculum and are given every opportunity to succeed.
My previous school roles range from Head of English and Creative Arts to Director of Sixth form, KS4 and Year 7. Recently, as part of the Extended Leadership Team in my most recent school, I led on whole school Pupil Premium, whole school Attendance and whole school EAL, whilst mentoring TeachDirect students.
As an Accredited Pupil Premium Reviewer (Loughborough Teaching Alliance), I have carried out Reviews in schools, as well as supporting two Secondary Schools with Closing the Gap.
In 2016 I was involved in the Northampton planning and organisation of the Attachment Awareness Training with Kate Cairns Association which has led to my current involvement and planning of the Reconnect Initiative programme across Northamptonshire and eventually nationwide.
