Ally is an enthusiastic and passionate advocate for Religious Education in the classroom and beyond. As the specialist teacher of R.E. at Barnwood Park School, Ally understands the unique position R.E. teachers often find themselves in and, as a former GITEP trainee, is well placed to support R.E. NQTs in the county. Ally is an avid networker and looks forward to building more links for R.E. in Gloucestershire. Currently reading for a PhD, Ally’s expertise is in Ecotheology and she will be applying this research to the development of training and resources that support effective teaching and learning.
