Primary Teaching Support led by The Teach Hub

The Teach Hub is made up of a team of highly experienced primary teachers that share a passion and love of teaching.

Claire Hubbard is a highly experienced and knowledgeable Primary English Consultant and Teacher, who has been teaching and training for over 33 years. She is currently working across many counties and internationally, supporting numerous schools. She works as both a Key Stage One and Key Stage Two Moderator for Staffordshire and Moderation Manager for Walsall, and has delivered support and training in this role for many years. She is the Managing Director of ‘The Teach Hub’, a Primary Teaching online training and resource company and has recently worked with BBC Bitesize as their adviser on their new Phonics programme, and Penguin House Publishing (Ladybird books) with their new ‘Learn with Ladybird’ activity books. She is also a current part-time Year Two teacher who has been successfully moderated herself many times.

The Teach Hub’ provides a host of tried and tested editable unique resources to support any courses delivered. The Teach Hub work as a team that includes: Amy Gilbert, an Upper Key Stage Two teacher (and Claire’s daughter); Louise Walmsley, a Lower Key Stage Two teacher (and Claire’s identical twin); and Jen Sadler, an experienced Key Stage Two teacher and Associate Consultant, working to support the Greater Depth expectations in both reading and writing in her own school.

The Teach Hub has now produced their own Phonics Progression (The Teach Hub Letters and Sounds) and applied for validation in October 2021 where most of the criteria were met. They have nine schools currently trialling the Programme and are reapplying with updated criteria during 2022.

Claire and Jen are available for classroom support with individual or groups of teachers, as well as whole school training/support in Primary English.
