I am an enthusiastic Headteacher of a two form entry Primary school which is situated in a challenging area with high levels of disadvantage, SEND and EAL. I am passionate about giving children the best start in education in order to enable them to develop a love of learning and overcome barriers within their lives. This philosophy has driven our school improvement over the past five years and see our results rise to above national average in all key areas. This has been achieved whilst not losing sight of our belief that all children deserve a well-rounded education that values sport, arts, and music. This has also been used as a model of good practice across our Multi-Academy Trust where I am one of the strategic Leads.
The first three years of Headship, Developing an effective behaviour management strategy across a school, Using data effectively through consistent tracking and monitoring, Leadership development, Creating an effective curriculum, Safeguarding, Building relationships within a school.
St Peters Primary School Bury - Helped implement a model of focussed intervention (PiXL) which helped drive standards across the school and raise aspiration. The school now have a targeted approach with clear targets aimed at key marginals in Maths, Reading and Writing. The impact has been significant in raising KS1 and KS2 data.
Wesley Methodist Primary School Bury - Developed a method of engaging all staff in a consistent approach to dealing with challenging behaviour. The impact has been that the model has been fully rolled out across the school, this has led to a marked reduction in the numbers of incidents that require adult intervention.
