Elizabeth Denton

A little more about Elizabeth:

Elizabeth grew up in Dorset but has been teaching English in East London since 2012.

She has recently qualified as an Educational Psychotherapist with the Caspari Foundation, completing her clinical placement at Islington CAMHS, working one-to-one with Looked After Children.

She is now completing a two-year Leadership Programme with The Difference, an organisation which aims to reduce exclusions from mainstream schools by up-skilling teachers in inclusive practices.

As Associate Senior Leader in a Pupil Referral Unit, she is responsible for student and staff wellbeing, as well as Literacy across the Curriculum.

Her interests are in working with schools to help staff understand the emotional barriers to learning, and the links between low literacy and difficult early experiences.

She loves Dorset and hopes to return one day to work with schools and young people in her beloved home county.
