My job is delivering a structured and high-quality induction programme that enables all new staff, ITT and NQTs to unlock their unique potential, demonstrating and upholding ambition, respect, care and honesty.
I am also responsible for ensuring that the quality of education in art, photography, drama, music, design technology and PE is ambitious for all, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND. Raising attainment and instilling ambition for all higher attaining students to make exceptional progress through imaginative and creative learning where pupils show an enjoyment and fascination for learning about themselves, others and the world around them is another responsibility of my role.
In addition I lead the KS4 pastoral team ensuring all Year 10 and Year 11 pupils behave and demonstrate positive attitudes towards their education and future choices, showing high levels of ambition, respect, care and honesty throughout our wonderful community.
I work in partnership with the community, opening doors and opportunities to secure successful, happy and ambitious young people within our community. Working strategically with parents and carers to secure personal and academic success.
I love having been given numerous opportunities to lead on key areas of school life, showing ambition and drive to make a difference. Unlocking the talent in pupils, professionals and being fortunate to work in a career and a school that changes lives. The pupils being the heart of our school, and the professionals I work alongside like a second family. There is a reason I have been at Todmorden High School for 18 years!
I teach Photography and Art.
