Neil Gamesby: Supply Teacher
I operate as a fully-qualified, directly employed, Local Authority Supply Teacher. This means that, without the need for an agency, I can be personally contacted, often at short notice, to fill a short, long or medium-term absence in your school. Being directly employed, I am able to taylor my approach to teaching to suit the schools in which I work and have the opportunity to become familiar to staff, pupils and parents alike! The enormous advantage of contacting me directly is that I am available to follow-up my work, if requested, and work in a small number of local schools, I am often available to fill bookings at little or no notice. With several years experience of teaching my own classes (primarily Upper Key Stage Two), I find that I am very successful at building rapport and achieving a calm and effective teaching environment by employing a range of successful behaviour strategies. However, I now feel that the variety that supply work presents best uses my skills of adaptability and reliability in the in a way which suits me and the schools whom employ me.
Make A Booking
At present, I can be booked by briefly filling out the enquiry form at the bottom of the page and I will respond as soon as possible. Response times can be slower during school hours but I can be booked at very short notice or for pre-booked vacancies such as PPA cover or other planned absences.
Having experience of teaching Year 4, 5 and 6, I have a broad and varied subject knowledge of the National Curriculum.
As a qualified Rugby and Athletics coach, I am well qualified to teach P.E in schools and pride myself on my level of passion for the subject.
Maths And English
With the core subjects being a particular strength I am able to plan and deliver learning to children with a range of abilities and as a former holder of a TLR for Greater Depth, I am able to stretch and challenge those striving for higher levels of attainment.
Key Stage 1
Having experience of teaching all age groups, I am well-placed to provide cover in Key Stage 1 subjects.
