Executive Headteacher, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Accounting Officer (AO)
I am delighted to continue my role as Executive Headteacher of Oakfield Primary Academy and Temple Hill Primary Academy - now part of The Galaxy Trust. As I begin my ninth year as Executive Head of Oakfield and my fifth year as Executive Head of Temple Hill, I continue to be incredibly proud of our pupils and the many achievements they make on a daily basis whilst studying at our schools.
Many of you will already know that I have a very special family myself… Myself and my partner have four children – three of them with complex health and learning needs. They are an immense joy but I have to confess that our fourth child who others would call “mainstream” is the hardest work of all! We have adopted our children and so I feel I have a good understanding of issues faced by children living in care or who have been adopted, as well as children with special educational needs.
I am currently Chair of The Kent Association of Headteachers, North Board, which places me in a good position to promote the excellent work of our schools.
