Steve Philp

Steve is deputy headteacher at Paganel Primary School, Birmingham UK, where he runs the creative curriculum, maths, computing, ICT, and behaviour. In the past five years he has implemented radical curriculum change - improving the rigour of the curriculum whilst developing a co-constructed, themed curriculum based on the passions of the children and teachers in the school. In recent months he has been working with his staff to revamp this in line with the demands of the new National Curriculum (2014). In addition, he has developed a reflective culture within the school through the use of film.
Steve is a data expert: his number crunching was crucial to his school gaining 'good' in Ofsted 2012 and he has spoken about data at the Pearson ThinkTank: WeTweetEd #5.

As a Google Certified Teacher, Steve is intending to make teacher's lives easier by using Google's tools to increase efficiency and productivity.

His interests include: being a husband and father (to three), playing guitar, football (and Football Manager), brewing and steeping and (of course) frogs.
