Daniel Bellanfante – Subject Leader of PE
Daniel is a former student of Moor End Academy. After leaving the school as a student, Daniel went on to study at Huddersfield New College where he pursued his passion for sport and physical education at A-Level. He then went on to graduate from Leeds Trinity University with a 1st class honours degree in Sport Development and Secondary Education.
This allowed him to gain an insight into teaching and subsequently gain a role as an ETA at Moor End Academy working with our visually impaired students. This fantastic experience gave Daniel the understanding and passion for creating inclusive learning environments, rooted in mutual respect. Upon completing his year as an ETA, Daniel then went on to complete his teacher training at the academy, before honing his skills as an NQT at an alternative high performing school. Daniel’s passion and affiliation towards the Academy is emphasised with his role of Subject Leader of P.E, in which he strives to encourage life-long participation in physical activity for all our students. Daniel also now mentors trainee teachers in the hope that his love and enthusiasm for the subject is sustained and embedded within those new to the career of teaching.
Daniel partakes in a range of different sports outside of work including football, badminton and table tennis. He has a strong passion for music and takes pleasure from socialising with family and friends. When Daniel I not playing sports, he loves to watch his beloved Liverpool FC and is passionate about heavy weight boxing.
