As Headteacher I am a member of the Governing Body and contribute to the Full GB, Resource, Teaching and Learning and Children, Families and Community committees. I have worked in Special Needs education for the vast majority of my career and have worked at Brent Knoll for twenty three years as a class teacher, curriculum lead, middle and senior leader. I became Headteacher in January 2019. Whilst a teacher I was the staff representative on the Governing Body for nine years representing the views of staff and contributing to strategic vision from the staff perspective.
Since becoming Head the GB has undergone review which resulted in a realignment of the Sub Committee structure to its present form which has allowed the school to achieve challenge and support from the GB in achieving our strategic vision and ensure that priorities for school improvement are realised. The GB have relevant skills, experience and motivation to achieve the ambition of becoming a national centre of excellence for Special Education
Key to this intent is the need to review the curriculum to ensure that all of our pupils have the very best educational experience to allow them the opportunity to transition from Brent Knoll. We aim to enable them to be as as well equipped, with as much independence as possible so that they can become active citizens in their own communities knowing that they can ‘Be the best that they can be’
