Charlotte Mosey

Assistant Head of Discipline: Primary Initial Teacher Training and Education


Teacher Training



I am Assistant Head of Discipline for the Primary Initial Teacher Training and Education team. Prior to this, I was a Primary Teacher with leadership experience across all phases of Primary Education. My subject specialism is Primary Foreign Languages. 

Teaching responsibilities

I teach across both undergraduate and postgraduate ITT/E Programmes with a focus on English, Primary Foreign Languages, Inclusion (specifically adaptive teaching) and Professional Practice modules. 

Professional interests

I have an interest in the teaching of English and the promotion of Wider Curriculum subjects. I have a passion for the History of Art and Primary Foreign Languages in particular.

I have a professional interest in all aspects of inclusion and inclusive practice. This was developed when I worked in a primary school as the designated teacher for 'looked-after' children. 

Research interests

My recent publications focus on supporting fundamental skills in English for students and also the impact of adaptive teaching for all learners. 

I am now using my ongoing research looking specifically at adaptive teaching to offer CPD support to our partnership schools.

Collaborating with a school in Tower Hamlets, London who are currently undertaking work linked to adaptive approaches in their setting, I have been invited to submit a paper to Impact Journal outlining our journey so far, linking school practice to university research as a partnership. 


Recent conferences

BERA Annual Conference (2022) 

Experience in industry

I have over 15 years of experience working in schools, both as a classroom practitioner and in various leadership roles including acting Headteacher/Assistant Headteacher of a large Infant School in South Derbyshire. 


International experience

I completed the final element of my PGCE primary teacher training in two inner city schools in Nancy and Metz, Northern France.
