Personal ambition statement for SLE deployment: (150 words)


I am a motivated Year 6 practioner at Park Academy with the drive to improving Mathematical understanding for all children.  I feel that working together is an essential aspect of driving area wide improvement. I view working as an SLE to be a collaborative 2 way process where both parties involved can grow as a result and ultimately improve outcomes for children. My personal ambition as a SLE, is to work with more schools and practioners to ensure that no matter which school a child attends, they get the best possible Maths education.
