Profile

I graduated from Loughborough University in 1997 before following a PGCE in Physical Education at Bangor University. I taught at Ysgol Friars for 5 years, 4 as Head of Department. In 2004 I was appointed Head of PE at Ysgol Eifionydd, and later became an Assistant Headteacher (2011).

My personal interest is in Gymnastics and Athletics and have worked closely with Schools to develop programmes that improve Physical Literacy.

Research


Over the past two years, I have worked closely with local primary schools looking at different pedagogical approaches in teaching Physical Development and Physical Education. One project focused on developing a cooperative learning pedagogy to improve the use of ICT and Numeracy in Athletics. In 2016-17 I was funded by Sports Wales in a project to look at Physical Literacy.


My current research is looking at Risk taking in Physical activity and the effect on Health and Wellbeing.


I am also working alongside Dr Susan Jones looking at how “Lesson Study” can develop student teachers’ practice in a school setting.
