A King's Lynn teacher is to be mentored by an Oxford academic as part of a country-wide initiative to aid school teachers' professional development.

Dr Kalpana Tadikonda, head of religious studies at King Edward VII Academy, will be working with Dr Tim Mawson, a fellow and tutor in philosophy, discussing the latest research and debates in the field of ethics.

The scheme is run by St Peter's College, one of Oxford University's constituent colleges, and is being rolled out in nine comprehensive schools across England.

Academics will work with the teachers throughout the year to help them prepare their most able pupils to apply to the university.

Dr Tadikonda said: 'I teach ethics and philosophy at A-level, and it will be hugely stimulating from a personal point of view to have academic discussions on these topics.
