Clare Shivnan-Taylor

Monster Phonics Trainer

BA (Hons) PGCE Early Years Specialist Leader in Education EYFS/KS1
Phonics Lead Practitioner for Bury Local Authority
Letters and Sounds Phonics Trainer

I teach part-time in EYFS at Christ Church Primary School in Bury Lancashire. On additional days I lead a Letters and Sounds Training programme delivering Phases 1 – 6 training throughout the academic year through Bury Education and Training Support (BEST). I also lead training for new teachers to Year 1 to support them throughout the year in preparation for the Phonics Screening Check.
Initially, I attended Monster Phonics training led by Ingrid Connors and was inspired by the programme particularly in its multi-sensory approach to supporting the learning needs of children to develop phonological awareness and the skill to decode and encode words. I am now a trainer for Monster Phonics and have led many of the free events in schools in the Greater Manchester area. I am passionate about teaching children phonics using a systematic synthetic phonics programme where the children experience a range of learning styles to ensure a secure understanding of phonics.

I am married to a high school teacher and they have two boys who keep her busy. I enjoy reading, yoga and art.
