Senior Assistant Vice Principal
I graduated from Leeds Beckett
University in July 2007 and worked as a support worker in a South Leeds SILC
for 4 years, predominantly supporting children with Autism. Following this, I
completed my teacher training in 2011 and secured a teaching role at Bradford
Academy as an NQT. I have taught in all Key Stages but most recently in Year 5
and 6. In 2015 I became KS2 Lead and in 2018 I progressed to Senior Assistant
Vice Principal, responsibly for KS2 and Behaviour for Learning.
I am the Senior Assistant Vice
Principal for Bradford Academy Primary and I have a full time teaching
responsibility. I currently teach Year 5 and ensure that they are given a broad
and balanced topic curriculum, alongside the core subjects of Maths, English,
Science and RE. I like my classroom to be engaging, supportive and a safe place
to be. As part of my KS2 Lead role, I ensure that staff feel known and
supported both in and out of the classrooms. Leading on Behaviour for Learning,
it my passion that all children actively engage in their lessons, feel safe to
question and know how they have achieved through the use of Building Learning
My ambitions for our students is
that they grow into kind young people that can share their positive values.
They can communicate effectively in the wider world to ensure they have the
best opportunities for a safe and successful future.
