I have worked in primary education for twenty three years, seventeen of those as a headteacher. Since 2008, I have worked at Tyntesfield Primary School, initially as Headteacher and more recently as Executive Headteacher.
Since Tyntesfield converted to Academy status in 2017, and Inspiring Learners was established, I have been Head of the Trust.
In 2015, Tyntesfield was designated a Teaching School and one of three lead schools in Trafford Teaching School Alliance (TTSA). Since then, I have worked closely with many Trafford Primary Headteachers to develop a CPD Programme, Research and Development opportunities and school to school support for Trafford primary schools.
I am also a National Leader in Education (NLE) and, for the past few years, I have also had the privilege of working alongside school leaders in several schools, providing leadership development and coaching. More recently, I was asked to take up the role of Interim Headteacher at Bollin Primary School and, after fifteen months supporting the school, I was delighted that Bollin Primary School joined our Trust.
As a lead facilitator on the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH), I enjoy working alongside new and aspiring headteachers, a role I find incredibly rewarding.
Inspiring Learners Trust came about from our passion and commitment to provide the best opportunities for children, and staff, to grow and flourish as learners.
Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere (Chinese Proverb)
Learning is at the heart of our Trust and we fervently believe that every child deserves the very best opportunities to achieve their potential. Although no longer in the classroom, I am as passionate as ever about teaching, learning and innovative curriculum development and in my new role as Head of Trust and Executive Headteacher, I am excited to lead the Trust towards achieving our vision.
