In the Spotlight

This half term – we spent 3 minutes with:

Mr Sidhu – Associate Assistant Headteacher, Manor House Lead, PHSE

1.What inspired you to teach?
As a teenager I used to help coach younger players at Old Leamingtonians rugby club. This was a great experience and gave me my first taste of sharing my knowledge and skills with others and watching them improve as a result. Doing this laid the foundations for making me look into teaching. It made me realise how much I enjoyed helping others and helping them improve or learn something new.

2. A day in the life of you….
Wake up, get my children ready and drop them off at nursery. Then straight to school for a fun filled day. Most afternoons I am in meetings or catching up on work. The evening is spent doing the usual routine with young children, (playtime, dinner, bath and bedtime stories) once they go to bed I check my emails, catch up on any paper work, marking, etc before a quick bit of relaxation, either reading or TV before drifting off.

3. Proudest moment?
All the little moments in this job when you make students laugh and they learn and gain new skills or knowledge.

4. What is your favourite food or place to eat?
Charcoal oven cooked steak at Ye Olde Saracens Head. The steak is amazing.

5. Last box set/film you watched?
Last film I watched was ‘Spiderman Into The Spiderverse’, great film! Last box set I watched was ‘This is Us’.

6.What are your plans for Easter?
Going on a family vacation to Cape Sounion in Greece, then a week at home catching up on work, meeting friends and relaxing before it all begins again when term starts.
