Specialist Leader of Education - Laura Jones

I have been teaching in primary schools for 15 years and I am currently a Year 2 class teacher at Severnbanks Primary school in the Forest of Dean.

I have Senior Leadership Team experience and as part of this team helped to lead my then current school out of ‘Special Measures’ to ‘Good’. 

I am currently the Phonics lead at Severnbanks Primary and have worked with both teaching and support staff to review and improve the phonics provision there. I have also worked with staff at other schools to support them to make changes to their own Phonics practise in order to raise pupil attainment.


My SLE specialisms are:

  • Phonics – improving pupil attainment through planning creative and engaging lessons, use of effective assessments and pupil tracking to inform planning. 
  • RAP writing
  • KS1 SATS moderation and support Year 2 teachers to use the Teacher’s Assessment Framework effectively in reading, maths and writing. I have three years experience as a KS1 LA moderator and have worked for the STA to help train LA moderation managers.
  • NQT mentoring and coaching
  • Teaching classroom music
