English - Harj Parwana
Harj is currently Assistant Principal having been Head of English and Media since 2012. Her experience has also shown her the importance of establishing a standardised method of recording student progress across departments, and how it can quickly transform the way teachers and middle managers ensure that cohorts of students make outstanding progress. As Assistant Principal and working on whole school CPD she has been able to facilitate professional conversations, whole school.
She is motivated by wanting to improve all young people’s lives regardless of which school they attend or what area they live in. This core value has underpinned much of her career, resulting in ever improving English results which are better than both the Sandwell and national average. By sharing resources, influencing thinking, policy and practice Harj believes she can have a positive impact on the lives and life chances of all young people.
