Professional learning that built teachers' capacity in giving students feedback on writing, using teacher inquiry. Staff were well-supported and engaged in this process and have commented positively on having this opportunity to develop their practice.
Rob has been an integral part of the appraisal process and the professional development of our senior leadership team at Queenstown Primary School. He helped me gain insight into my strengths and how best to put them to work. He is always approachable and easy to deal with, while remaining professional and honest. He is knowledgable and passionate about the work he does.
Leadership appraisal helped us identify our strengths individually and as a team. He guided us on how to work with these strengths and support each other by delving into our potential as a team. Rob has a knack of being able to lead and support from the side without telling us what to do but by asking probing questions that enable us to think on a deeper level.
Rob makes me and think about the deeper issues facing our school and is supporting us to strengthen the teaching and learning across all aspects of the curriculum. His insight into leadership is helping to develop a stronger and more future-focused leadership team.
What really helped was the strategic, feet on the floor and considered recommendations. You don’t know what you don’t know so to have Rob push my thinking, share new ideas and guide into a better way was a huge win.
