Context of School

I am the Headteacher of a larger than average primary school with an SEN Resource unit in a mixed catchment area of Stockport.  During my ten years in post, working with school stakeholders, I have developed strong school teams and a Governing body who are driven, committed to school growth and able to achieve change and develop others.  As a result standards have steadily improved and children’s aspirations have risen.

As a partner in the Empower Alliance, a collaborative of system leaders led by Gatley Teaching School with a range of expertise in supporting schools I have a full appreciation of the need for robust self-evaluation, shared ambition and partnerships at all levels.
