Assistant Headteacher, Grange Primary School
I can offer support with:
Age range: EY – Y6
I became an SLE on the second national intake in 2012 whilst working within Middlesbrough Local Authority. Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to ascertain a wealth of experience particularly in the areas of Special Educational Needs and Behaviour.
Following four years working within KS1 and the EYFS I moved from Stockton LA to Middlesbrough and became a SENCO and lead teacher of an Autism Resource Base. I then spent two years working for Middlesbrough’s Learning and Language Team and gained a PGC in Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia). In this role, I worked across a range of both primary and secondary settings, supporting SENCOs and carried out both assessments and tailor made interventions.
Keen to develop my leadership skills I then joined a mainstream primary school and taught a discrete Y5/6 SEN group and as well as other whole school responsibilities, I was also a member of the senior management team. Whilst in this role, I became an SLE and played an active role in delivering CPD, developing the role of the SLE within Middlesbrough and completing successful deployments, supporting colleagues in other schools.
Since 2014, I have been the Assistant Headteacher at Grange Primary School here in Hartlepool. As a senior leader in school I have specific responsibility for behaviour and inclusion as well as sport and being team leader for the Y3/4 team.
Since September 2017 I have also been seconded to ‘Together to Succeed’ to coordinate the SLE Team.
