Families Support Manager & Designated Safeguarding Lead/SPOC at Temple Hill & Oakfield
Assistant Headteacher - Inclusion & SEN Co-Ordinator
I would describe myself as Passionate, pro-active and committed. I started teaching in 2007 and worked across a range of schools: big, small, mainstream, specialist and independent. I also have experience working with children who have profound learning and physical disabilities which has given me a greater understanding of a range of children’s needs. Everywhere I’ve worked it was clear to me that my passion lies in helping children with special educational needs get what they need to reach their full potential. I come from a big family so I love getting involved in the hustle and bustle of family and school life. I strive for positive outcomes in everything I do, and at a time where the education system is in a period of change, I aim to inform, support, and motivate children, parents and teachers which I feel confident, eager and equipped to do.
After working as a 1:1 with different children with additional needs, I was then a class based AT for nearly three years. I have worked in many areas of the school including the Nursery but since October last year I have been working as the Inclusion assistant.
I am enjoying the new challenges that this job brings every day and am lucky enough to still take small groups of children for interventions.
