Miss Florence Pettit, Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages
Miss Pettit is new to the Isle of Wight originally hailing from Sussex. She has a BA in Modern Foreign Languages (French and Italian) from the University of Bristol and has since been teaching English in Paris and Madagascar. Miss Pettit joins us as a newly qualified teacher, having gained a PGCE from the University of Sussex in 2020.
Miss Pettit started teaching as a private tutor in Paris and then travelled to Madagascar where she coordinated an NGO English teaching project, working with schools and universities across the north of Madagascar. She recently moved back to the UK to complete a PGCE at the University of Sussex in Modern Foreign Languages. During this year, she worked alongside a strong MFL department at Uckfield College as well as in a Special Educational Needs school for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties.
Alongside her love of travel, Miss Pettit also enjoys watching foreign films, rock climbing and kite surfing.

Expectations of pupil progress
A progress measure identifies improvement in learning and therefore is a good measure of the impact an individual teacher has had on a pupil or class. Pupils are expected to make a minimum of 3 points’ progress in each subject each year. As part of teacher appraisals we will report on the average progress made by classes taught by each of our teachers. An average of three points is the expected progress measure. A progress measure of 4 points or more highlights good to outstanding teaching and learning. All progress measures at the Island Free School are taken from externally marked or moderated exams taken at the end of the year.
