I joined the Senior Leadership Team in 2002 as Deputy Head and my roles and responsibilities have changed several times since then! I am Head Teacher of Meadowside. I no longer have a class of my own, but have taught Reception, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 5 in previous years here. Although I am responsible for all staff and children, I have particular responsibility for school data – analysing and monitoring it, and comparing our performance against local and national standards. I also oversee Pupil Achievement and Progress across the school. I enjoy working with the Governing Body on a regular basis, to develop our school and move it forward. I’m passionate about my role in school as I know I’m Making a Difference for the pupils here every day. I’m also really lucky that we have a staff team who are inspirational to work with.
I joined the leadership team in September 2012. I am thoroughly enjoying my role as deputy head and I work alongside Miss Thomas to develop our school. I have particular interest in developing teaching and learning across our school. Working with a dedicated and enthusiastic team of adults at Meadowside is what I enjoy most on our continual quest for inspiring the children at our school.
Like Mr Port, I joined the leadership team in September 2012. I lead the English team and I have been a school governor for just over 4 years. As well as this, I am part of the school PTA, Friends of Meadowside, so I am involved with many different aspects of school life! In all my roles I work with dedicated people who are determined to make the children’s school life entertaining, fun and, most of all, enlightening!
I have been part of the leadership team at Meadowside since April 2007. I lead the maths team and contribute heavily to the assessment at our school. It’s great being involved in making decisions about the direction in which Meadowside is going and I thoroughly enjoy working with staff and children to make sure our school is a fantastic place to work and learn.
