David Allen

University of Hertfordshire
Associate Professor: Programme Lead in Primary Education

I worked in primary schools for over twenty years as a classteacher, senior leader and Deputy Headteacher. I taught across Key stages 1, 2 and 3 in UK and in Spain. During this time I developed a passion for science, art and design, improvised drama, assessment for learning, creativity and developing initiatives for higher attaining children. I am now an Associate Professor in Learning and Teaching at the University of Hertfordshire where I am also Science Lead and Art Lead across the ITE programmes. I enjoy writing and, having written chapters focusing on ‘the transition from Key Stage 1 to Key stage 2’, ‘Mentoring Associate Teachers and Newly Qualified Teachers’ and ‘Creativity in Science’. My most recent publications include: ‘Science Meets English’ and 'Superhero Scientists' both published by Millgate House.
