I’m Katie Ashford, Deputy Headteacher at Michaela Community School in Wembley, London. This blog is about education. I used to write under the pseudonym Tessa Matthews.
At Michaela, I lead on inclusion and teach English. Here, I write about a bunch of things, but I’m mostly interested in the teaching of reading and knowledge, and maintaining sky high expectations for the weakest pupils. I have pretty strong views on all of this, but I’m always open to challenge and debate.
