I have been a working in Pre-Schools, Nursery/Early Years settings and Primary Education for over 25 years. I became an Inclusion Manager at The Round House Primary Academy in 2009 and over the past 5 years my job has developed into a Trust wide role, supporting other schools within The Diamond Learning Partnership. This involves supporting Behaviour Management (including children with SEND), Safeguarding and Child Protection, training and management of support staff, Parent guidance and support, working with the Locality Team and a range of outside agencies and professionals, Mentoring, Bereavement Counselling, working with Looked After Children and disadvantaged families and I have a vast range of knowledge in Pastoral Care.
I am currently part of the Senior Leadership Team within my school and I work closely with all staff from the Chief Executive Officer and Headteachers to Class teachers and Teaching Assistants to implement and embed policies, protocols and procedures across the schools within our Trust.
My work is underpinned by my passion to inspire and raise aspiration in all children to make sure that they reach their potential and prepare them for the next stage of their learning journey.
Key areas of expertise: Behaviour Management, Staff Mentoring, Safeguarding and Child Protection, Pupil Premium and Disadvantaged family network support.
