Saul Pope

Literacy, English as an additional language, Pupil and Sports Premium, Year 2 Governor

Saul has been in education for the last 15 years, firstly as an English teacher and latterly as a manager in both college education and prison education. However, he began by helping children to read at his Mum's (a retired primary school teacher) school when he was twelve, and later continued volunteering in the school by teaching the children a little Russian once he had started a degree in the language.

He is passionate about improving educational opportunities for all ages, and bringing his enthusiasm for this to the role. His career has given him a lot of experience of classroom observation, data scrutiny and preparation for OFSTED inspections. He has been heavily involved in many inspections as a manager, and is a trained OFSTED inspector for further education. His son attends the school.
