Laura Thwaites

Background Information

I have been working in Primary Schools for 7 years and have taught for the past 4 years across schools in Liverpool and Lincolnshire. Through teaching in both inner city and rural schools, I have worked with children in KS1, KS2 and taught mixed year groups. I currently teach at Witham St Hughs Academy, an OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ school with roughly 350 pupils that was recently designated as 1 of 32 ‘English Hubs’. Within my time at Witham St Hughs Academy, I have had the opportunity to continue my professional development through middle leadership roles, NQT support, ITT training and research projects.
