Gaynor Brimble, Ed.Hons, MA 
 
Gaynor has considerable teaching, learning and strategic leadership experience in a range of challenging schools across the primary phase. She has particular expertise in Foundation Phase.
In her role as Curriculum Improvement Adviser for Newport from 1999 - 2008 Gaynor successfully completed an MA as part of her Reading Recovery teacher leader role. She has trained many teachers to successfully identify and improve the literacy learning of the hardest to teach pupils, which is a passion of hers. This experience and passion has enabled Gaynor to disseminate her expertise more widely, and to promote the very best of Foundation Phase practice alongside effective literacy teaching and learning with senior leaders and headteachers.
 
Gaynor has lead the work of the Foundation Phase team in Newport for a number of years during which time the team has gained a reputation for delivering high quality training, support and guidance to schools and settings.
 
She has significant experience of whole school self-evaluation and improvement planning, and has worked successfully with schools to both support them in preparing for inspection and in addressing the recommendations. 
More recently Gaynor has undertaken the role of acting-head teacher of a primary school facing very challenging circumstances. During this time she has effectively implemented strategies to secure sustained improvement and built strong, effective working relationships amongst staff, parents and governors which fostered a strong community ethos with a clear focus on improvement.
