North West Regional Ambassador
Joanne is Head of Humanities at Broughton High School (11-16 secondary school in Preston, Lancashire). She co-ordinates the Preston NATRE network group and is an examiner for OCR. Alongside this she has been co-opted onto the Lancashire SACRE, representing secondary teachers and delivering training on the Agreed Syllabus for local primary and secondary teachers. Her department was a pilot school for the RE Quality Mark (REQM) and has worked with the RE Council as part of the Young Ambassadors scheme.
'I love the fact that teaching RE is never boring, even after 20 years of teaching. One thing that excites me about RE at the moment is the sense that the RE community are really beginning to think about the nature and purpose of RE and working together to ensure that the subject is understood and valued.'
