Profile: I took up the role of Headteacher at Elburton in January 2019, following a headship in another Plymouth Primary School. I am delighted to be leading this school and to be working in Horizon Multi-Academy Trust. I started my teaching career over twenty years ago and have worked in several primary schools teaching across all of the age ranges. My leadership experience has been varied, including working as a leadership advisor for Plymouth Local Authority within this time.
I have been involved in school governance for over 15 years which has given me the strategic overview of the schools I have worked in.
As a teacher and leader, my passion is all about making a difference for our children, they get one chance at education and this must be the best, giving them the springboard for future success. As educationalists we are in a privileged position and can make such a difference to our children, staff and wider commmunity.
