“The hard work and dedication of our teaching staff has ensured that standards have been raised and engaging lessons are delivered.

“I became a teacher as I have a passion for teaching and learning and I became a Head of School because I wanted to make a difference for more than one class of pupils at a time. I have now been offered an opportunity to work on the curriculum for Burnt Mill Academy Trust. This role will allow me to have a positive impact the teaching and learning for pupils across the Trust from 3 to 18 years old.”

She has been at the heart of every development the school has made to improve outcomes for our pupils. I am confident that she will excel at leading the school in its continued improvement.

“I would like to thank all the parents and carers that have become Parent Champions, gave up their time for school events and reinforced the school values and policies that they helped to create.

“I also appreciate the support shown to me and the rest of the school staff by parents to give their children the best start on their educational path. As I always say, a parent is a child’s first and most important teacher. I have been very proud to support you in the education of your child.”
