I was appointed as the Head teacher of Dee Banks school in September 2016. Prior to this I was the Headteacher at another special school within the local authority, which catered for primary aged pupils diagnosed with autism.
I began my teaching career, after completing a BSc Hons with QTS at Edge Hill University, in a mainstream primary school in Knowsley. I then studied for my Post Graduate Diploma in SEN and secured a position in a special school, within the same borough, which had a very similar profile to Dee Banks school.
After completing a further Post Graduate Diploma in Childhood Autism, I started working for the Cheshire Autism Support And Development Team (CASADT), supporting pupils, families, nurseries, schools and colleges across Cheshire, before becoming a Headteacher for the first time.
As well as leading the school, I am currently the Designated Safeguarding Lead, heading up a team of staff who monitor and support our pupils and families.
I am passionate about our school and the pupils and families we cater for and feel privileged to be the Headteacher of Dee Banks school.
