I have been in Education for 20 years in the West Yorkshire region working at schools in Leeds, Bradford and Rastrick. Within this time I have been a senior leader for 13 years, six years as an Assistant Head Teacher working in for Support, five years as a Deputy Head Teacher in charge of Raising standards and currently as the Associate Headteacher of Rastrick High school. I am a strong believer in a student-centred school with the belief that everyone has the right to learn and flourish in a safe and engaging environment. This is driven by outstanding practice in teaching and learning and a collective culture of support for all.
I am responsible for our schools Data and Administration Team. Prior to this I worked for the NHS and local authority in a range of similar roles from data officer to senior information officer.Over the last few years the role has grown and I have taken on full responsibility for the administration team as well as becoming lead officer for GDPR.
Rastrick High School has been a large part of my life for the past 15 years. I originally came to the school as a trainee teacher in 2003/4 following several years in the IT industry. Throughout those 15 years I have gained a wide understanding of education through the eyes of Rastrick High school and its students and parents.
