Headteacher - Appointed 1 September 2015
I have over 15 years’ experience of primary education as a teacher, coordinator, phase leader, Assistant Headteacher, Head of School and Headteacher in Sheffield, Barnsley, Wakefield and Kuwait. In all settings, the progress and outcomes for all learners has improved dramatically. I truly believe that I have one of the greatest jobs!
I place a huge emphasis on the role of governance and its impact on the outcomes for all learners. Governors should be part of the fabric of school life and constantly seek to challenge. Since arriving at Walton, I have worked with governors to identify key areas of strength and also areas of development through self-evaluation and a skills audit that have provided the school with an action plan for governance that will enable the school to develop outstanding leadership at all levels.
I am a huge music fan and attend many concerts and festivals. I love to travel and have travelled extensively in Europe, the USA and Asia. I enjoy cooking as a way of relaxing at the end of the working day.
