Philippa still works four days a month in her previous setting, which is a specialist behaviour school for SEMH in which she was Assistant Head for over four years and held the SENDCo role for over six years. In addition to this she led English as a subject for over 8 years. In this role Philippa helped to meet the challenge of engaging reluctant learners - mainly boys - in writing. She played a pivotal role in developing learning plans and creating writing weeks to enthuse and engage learners.
In her current role at this specialist behavioural school, Philippa manages all the assessment of specific needs (dyslexia), plans interventions, delivers training to staff and sources the best intervention products available. Outside of this school, Philippa delivers CPD on Dyslexia and behaviour management and provides behaviour advice to mainstream schools, using the ‘Boxall profile’, to support learning plans and work with teachers to devise new and bespoke strategies.
