“Internal monitoring confirms clearly that she uses prior attainment to set clear, realistic but challenging targets for all students. The effectiveness of her work is illustrated both at the start of the academic year when the value-added process starts and throughout the year when summative assessments are used to evaluate pupil progress. She meets the exacting demands of lesson-planning in this school.” `
Headteacher Supporting Statement, Threshold
“Merrie is particularly effective in the classroom where her subject knowledge is excellent and her enthusiasm infectious. The students in her care respect her and want to do their best for her. This is especially true of the work she does with high ability students. She monitors progress and uses the systems within the department to ensure that all pupils are tracked and underachievers supported. She is an effective teacher at all key stages.”
