Term of office - 24.02.2014 - ongoing
I am an ‘ex offio’ member of the Governing Body which means I am a member because I hold the post of Headteacher. I am also a director of the Academy.
I have been in the teaching profession since 2002 working in Cheshire East schools, teaching children from reception to year 6. I have been at The Berkeley for 7 years, as the Deputy Head and now as Headteacher. Leading the school is a real privilege and I am blessed with hardworking and dedicated staff. It is great to work in our strong governor and staff team to provide high quality and enjoyable learning experiences for our pupils; they are at the heart of all that we do.
I imagine that most Headteachers feel like they are on question time or Mastermind each time they attend governor meetings, answering questions on their specialist subject – their school. These questions are challenging, as Headteachers are accountable to governors and means that every effort is made to move The Berkeley Academy from good to outstanding.
