Xania Matthews

KS1 Leader & Primary Lead Practitioner for Science


I currently work at Hammond Academy, part of the Aspire Academies Trust, where I am the Primary Lead Practitioner (PLP) for Science across the Aspire schools. I was designated an SLE in 2014. I am always updating my interests, enthusiasm and knowledge for science and as such have undertaken further training through the Science Learning centres and achieved the accreditation of Leading Science Teacher. I also facilitate training courses for the Science Learning Centres and have delivered a range of courses from Working Scientifically, Science and Literacy and Assessment and Progression. Science is a passion and I truly believe that science should involve as much practical experiences as possible and fully endorse children using and showing their working scientifically skills. Children learn more from science through the use of creativity and curiosity.
