English

I am a Lead Practitioner in English at Impington Village College with responsibility for the Key Stage 5 curriculum. I came to Impington in 2016 as a Lead Practitioner with responsibility for KS4, PP and SEND in English. Before coming to Impington, I was second in English and Pupil Premium co-ordinator at St Bede’s inter-church school in Cambridge. I had arrived there as an NQT in 2010. I have also done exam marking for AQA, consultancy work for CIE and am an examiner for their PDQ portfolios for Mexican school leaders. My areas of interest are English teaching, whole school literacy, supporting disadvantaged students, metacognition and assessment and feedback.

SLE Christine Martin
Biology

Originally from Scotland, I moved to Cambridge to complete my PGCE in Science 11 years ago with my specialism being Biology up to KS5. At IVC, I have progressed from Lead Teacher: Biology (three years) to my current role Head of Keller House (4 years). I am very motivated, enthusiastic, reliable, patient and a passionate facilitator of learning inside and outside the classroom and take great pride in the fact that I am extremely organised and proactive. I have completed a PGCPS in Restorative approaches to conflict in schools and an MEd, both at the University of Cambridge delving into the pastoral aspects of schooling where my passion now lies. I am a keen advocate of analysing relevant and accurate data to identify students who would benefit from some form of intervention and work closely with colleagues to support and mentor in the development and implementation of strategies aimed at improving the learning in Biology and the pastoral side of college life.

I have been on the Cambridgeshire SACRE, developing the locally agreed syllabus for RE and schemes of work.

A particular interest is developing classroom activities which are challenging and stretch the class including the more able.
