Recent Industry Experience
Heritage Park School – School Principal
Heritage Park is a school that caters for children aged 7-16 who all have social, emotional or mental health needs. I am leading the staff team through a journey of significant and rapid improvement. Using group and 1:1 coaching I have been able to change culture and ethos to promote productivity and well-being.
Springwell Lincolnshire – Executive Vice Principal
A Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) in special measures, Springwell Lincolnshire needed sustained and supportive development. As part of the Senior School leadership team we created systems, processes and advanced teaching and learning that allowed successful Ofsted monitoring visits and sustained improvement.
Nether Edge Primary School – Assistant Headteacher
Located in a deprived inner city area, Nether Edge Primary School is an outstanding multicultural school with 98% EAL learners. I led the Foundation Stage, including a Nursery, as well developing safeguarding across the school. I implemented multi agency pilots including local council family support programmes and mental health projects alongside CAMHs.
