I have been involved with Waterton Academy Trust in a number of different guises for several years now, and so it is with great pleasure that I take up the role of a Member of the Trust. I look forward to being able to bring my experience in Primary Education to the Trust.
My career has been in education throughout, with two substantive headships, and two periods of acting headship. I also worked as a freelance consultant and trainer, working independently across the country, leading training courses for the NAHT (regional and national), a wide variety of school clusters, and a number of local authorities from the Isle of Wight to Newcastle on Tyne. I was also both a team and lead Ofsted inspector for a number of years, and involved in training for new inspectors. In addition to school support and training I have written a range of books, one or two of which are still in e-publication.
