Sarah Desborough, Year 5/6 teacher and Cohort 1 Mastery Specialist

Sarah Desborough ‘Having Cathryn as our Teaching for Mastery Lead has allowed us to really begin to work together as an effective team – sharing ideas, resources and importantly experiences! Cathryn also accompanied me on my first round of school visits; an aspect of my Mastery Specialist role that I was initially nervous about. She acted as a coach, helping me to reflect on how I could best assist the schools that I work with to develop mastery in their own settings. Importantly, her guidance has ensured that the support I am offering is consistent with that of my Mastery Specialist colleagues across our hub.’
