Primary Assessment Leader
My name is Chris Robinson, recently appointed Assessment Lead for EYFS and Primary. I find myself starting my third year teaching Year 5 in Qatar having graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in July 2016 with a Bachelor in Education (Primary) and worked in the UK (both at home in Northern Ireland and in London, England), Spain and India. I have always been fascinated by and passionate about the power and potential of assessment and, having led it in an outstanding school in London, am so delighted to be leading on this at WSQ. There are all kinds of assessments, all of which tell us so much and can have such a significant impact – assessment can transform our teaching, deepen our understanding and accelerate pupil progress. We have huge ambitions for WSQ and I am excited about working across the school community to promote and enhance the impact assessment can have. Away from school, I love watching and playing (badly!) all kinds of sports, reading across a whole range of different books (after all, great readers make great learners!) and listening to music and podcasts to relax and recharge.
