Mr Andy Dobson
Year 4 Teacher & Phase Leader
I’ve been teaching for 20 years in a variety of schools from Middle Schools with over 900 pupils to little village schools with only 3 classrooms in total.
I have been privileged to have worked at Estcots for 5 years as Phase Leader. I’m currently in Year 4. I love working with children of any age and children constantly surprise and delight me with their enthusiasm, imagination and maturity.
I lead Curriculum Development in the school, supporting our fantastic teams with their imaginative topics. My favourite topic has been ‘Colours of Africa’, a project that culminated in a really wonderful gallery of work and film at Chequermead.
This topic led me to travel to Tanzania to work with pupils there to make a film to share with pupils back at Estcots.
