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


I am entering my 20th year as an educator. I started out as a class teacher with a PE and Science degree.  After joining the Senior Leadership Team I went on to become the Deputy Headteacher and eventually the Headteacher at Staniland Academy.  Leading a school in special measure to outstanding over a period of 2 years was an intense experience.  Having a detailed understanding of the education system alongside a clear and ambitious vision were key to our success.  I firmly believe that a supportive, holistic style of leadership meant that the drive towards sustained improvements and raised standards was rapid.

This experience has been successfully shared with a number of schools with a focus on rapid school improvement and providing stability for growth.

I am committed to all children achieving their potential through access to high quality provision every day.  At the heart of this is great teaching supported by a strong curriculum that is relevant to the world the children live in. I believe the route to success is creating strong relationships between all stakeholders, promoting excellence for all.  In any setting that I have worked, the power of collaboration, challenge and humour ensure children have been the driving force for change and development. It is my ambition to facilitate schools in being the best they can to deliver great outcomes for all.
