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. I aim to utilise my previous experiences in leadership and student support to continue raising standards at Rastrick High School. My goal is to create a thriving culture of excellence that provides an outstanding educational experience inspiring students to achieve excellent academic outcomes, and become great citizens within society as a whole.
Head of School
I have been in Education for 20 years in the West Yorkshire region working at schools in Leeds, Bradford and Rastrick. During this time I have been a senior leader for 13 years, six years as an Assistant Head Teacher, five years as a Deputy Head Teacher in charge of Raising standards and currently as the Head of School at Rastrick High school.
Deputy Headteacher Achievement and Support
I lead and develop the Achievement and Support functions of the school, including attendance, climate for learning and support for all pupils. During my tenure at Rastrick High School, I have held numerous leadership roles with increasing levels of responsibility, providing a firm foundation in the understanding of our school and the culture that is essential to this role.
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.
