Cluster Advisor

­­Peter has been a Fellow of the Primary Science Teaching Trust since 2010. Teaching in a wide variety of schools, Middle, Junior and Primary (Key Stage 1 and 2), school leadership and the classroom have always taken equal place. He has twice held Deputy and Acting Headships as well as being a Governor of several schools. Being a member of the Association for the Study of Primary Education (ASPE), ­­­National Executive helped maintain and develop a useful perspective. Currently, Peter is a member of the Royal Microscopical Society, serving on the Outreach and Education group. Incorporating his interest in succession leadership and science, have been important to him and led to the setting up of several Deputy Head groups and a science cluster network in the Salisbury area.

Through becoming part of the PSTT College, the opportunities have been widened. New ventures include running workshops for teachers and children, writing the odd article for publications including Primary Science, In Focus and the School Science Review. Whilst the majority of his role is now for the Trust, as the PSTT Cluster Advisor, he continues to be a classroom practitioner working part time at Winterbourne Earls CE Primary school, Wiltshire. At present, he particularly enjoys exploring the links and benefits of cross curricular work between Science, Religious Education, Art and Microscopy. Other priorities for the future remain supportive, innovative collaborations and the development of school networks (clusters).
