My name is Emma O'Halloran and I have been teaching for 26 years and for the last 20 years I have been at King David High school in Liverpool. In that time I have worked as a science teacher, head of biology and for the last eight years as assistant headteacher. I qualified as an examiner in A2 biology and pride myself on an outstanding reputation delivering both fun and interesting lessons. As the designated safeguarding lead I also have an enhanced DBS certificate.

Lockdown lessons and zoom lessons all day can be exhausting and my goal is that my involvement will help break this monotony and inspire your child to want to learn.

Pastoral consultation

In addition to tuition I am able to offer pastoral welfare consultation. This provides an independent view of where the young person is best suited to fulfil their academic potential. I have recently completed assessing a young person of primary school age regarding their welfare needs and what placement is suitable. I will also soon  be starting the assessment of a secondary age pupil after the school holidays. This is a unique role in Liverpool that uses the wealth of experience and knowledge I have accrued in my time in the profession.
Other roles that I have held over the last seven years  as a member of the leadership team include:
Designated Safeguarding Lead and introduction with the whole staff the use of CPOMs software.
Mental health first aider and lead on all mental health issues including YPAS liaison, CAMHS liaison and Mindfulness for all.
Attendance Lead working closely with the Educational welfare officer and office manager to support families that need it.
Family support worker liaison.
Pastoral and behaviour lead managing alternative provision, partnership with Alder hey school, developing a new pastoral system with school and developing the role of the behaviour manager.
Co-ordination of EHCP's and EHATs with the school SENDCO, often taking the lead on the EHATs Achievement and rewards lead alongside the school council to log awards using SIMs and organise termly and yearly school trips.
Antibullying ambassador with a select group of pupils.
