TLR2b (£5,348) Training to be Deputy SENCo TLR 2c (£3,213)

I came to Winston in 2019 after completing 2 and a half years as a teacher in a small primary school. I never imagined myself working in a large secondary school. However, I wanted to try something new to challenge myself and I'm so glad I took the jump to secondary.   I'm able to take on new opportunities and be part of a bigger team but also have knowledge of where the students should be at when coming up from Year 6, which really helps in my role. I've been here for 5 years, and I absolutely love it. Working with the young people at Winston is inspiring and it's so rewarding to support them as they continue through their educational journey.
