Background/experience of leadership in subject/area of expertise: (max 300 words)

As a headteacher for over 16 year I have led both LCC schools and church schools of small to medium size. I have had experience of Ofsted inspections as a leader 4 times and supported colleagues through Section 48/Siams inspections also.

I have been an executive head for 2 years and mentored and coached senior leaders to the point of headship.

As an LLE I have worked to support experienced heads, especially following OFSTED or in preparation for OFSTED / mentoring a number of heads who have found themselves struggling emotionally / building leadership in school and succession planning / helping to build an excellent governing body / taking a school from special measures to good / encouraging distributed leadership.


Areas I may be able to support include:

Mentoring / coaching / leadership development / prioritising / governing bodies / assessment under the new curriculum / induction for new heads

I hope the information given here will help you to decide if I would be a good match for your school and current situation.

Personal ambition statement for LLE deployment: (150 words)


My ambition as an LLE is to support and develop both schools and leaders in what are very demanding but rewarding roles. I feel it is part of my responsibility to support schools in giving the children in Lincolnshire the best education and experience we can. If can help develop and give the children in our care the best start then my ambition will be fulfilled.
