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.
Deputy Headteacher Teaching & Learning
My role is supporting staff, to ensure ‘teaching is mostly outstanding and never less than good’. To support staff, we provide an outstanding CPD programme to ensure staff are up-to-date with the most recent research, and can apply this to their everyday practice. I also ensure we offer an outstanding curriculum for our students, and a personalised options process for Year 9 students.
Assistant Headteacher Standards
During my time in education, through working in two multi academy trusts, I have gained experience of a number of educational settings and contexts in a range of capacities including senior leadership.
Assistant Headteacher Achievement & Support
As Assistant Headteacher, I oversee Achievement and Support across KS3 to establish a positive climate for learning for all students. Furthermore, I am the strategic lead for whole school attendance and punctuality.
