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.
Assistant Headteacher Quality of Education.
I am Assistant Head Teacher leading Quality of Education. I am a firm believer that as well as continuing to achieve outstanding results consistently we are all responsible in ensuring students are set up with the skills to become successful in the future. I have always been proud to work in a school with outstanding practitioners and students.
We have developed an excellent culture at Rastrick that rewards our students for the effort they make in both formal lessons and through our wide-ranging enrichment programme. The enjoyment our students get from these programmes is perhaps our greatest achievement as a school.
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.
