Strengths

I believe firmly that safeguarding has to be the number 1 priority for everyone in education. I work to promote this culture in all of our schools. I am committed to ensuring that all young people grow up in circumstances consistent with that of safe and effective care, so they have every chance to thrive in school. Passionate in supporting staff with the skills and knowledge they need to support our young people in often the most challenging times in their lives.
