“For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a teacher. This stemmed from my amazing P6 teacher who made every single child in her class feel important.

“I have been a Headteacher for just over 18 months. I have learned so much about the importance of working simultaneously with the school and its community, as a positive relationship between both is imperative to lead a school on a continuous improvement journey.

“Always remember the reason we do our job is to make a difference and improve outcomes for children. It is important you work hard to build relationships with every individual child to ensure they always feel part of something in class or in the school.

“My advice to anyone considering taking the next steps would be: apply for the Into Headship qualification! The course allows you to develop a network of people who understand what you are going through.”
