“I was initially attracted to a career in teaching due to my love of working with children. I was positive I would be successful in helping people in school and the wider community. My mission is simple: to inspire the colleagues and pupils I work with.

“As a Headteacher, there is an opportunity to make a difference, as such we have shaped our curriculum to reflect the needs of our community.

“There are too many positive changes I have made since taking up post to list them all, however one that stands out is the increased awareness of adversity, resulting in Burnside being one of the first schools in the country to share a resilience film with our parents.

“I would like to take this opportunity to stress the importance of preparing for the role of Headship, because if you do and don’t shy away from some of the more challenging experiences you will thrive in this rewarding role.”
