Teaching Summary
My background is in primary education (children age 5 – 11 years) having been a teacher, deputy/acting Principal as well as an in-service and initial teacher trainer. I have worked in the field of educational research for over 20 years, a large part of this is devoted to investigating the influence of early years education, the family and compulsory schooling on children’s development. I have conducted research for both the UK government and non-governmental bodies exploring the impact of educational initiatives. My work, within the UK and internationally, focuses on ‘quality’ early experiences, effective pedagogy and the development of policies for young children and their families. I have served as a Council member of the British Educational Researchers Association (2004-2007). I am currently a Principal Investigator and the Research Co-ordinator for the Effective Pre-school, Primary and Secondary Education Project, a longitudinal study funded by the UK’s Department for Education (1997-2014).
