As the headteacher of Grange Primary School I have an inclusive vision and a wealth of primary practice. My vision is ‘Achievement for All’ so I am very proud that in June 2015 Ofsted judged Grange Primary School as ‘Good’ in all areas and describes Grange as a “happy, hardworking and inclusive school.”
Since qualifying as a teacher back in the early 1980s I have never waivered in my passion for education. I have always wanted to make a difference to children’s life chances and provide them with the best opportunities possible. Over my thirty plus year career, I have been incredibly lucky to have had so many varied, exciting opportunities that have provided me with the skills and knowledge to be the headteacher of this wonderful school.
My previous roles in education as Inclusion Manager, Deputy Headteacher, English Adviser, Principal School Improvement Adviser and a qualified Ofsted Inspector mean I know how to successfully raise standards. It’s something I enjoy doing. I see my role of headteacher at Grange Primary as both a challenging and an incredibly rewarding experience; one that I am more than qualified to do. The children and the staff motivate me. On a daily basis I’m driven by children’s enthusiasm for learning. Grange has a great leadership team who mirror my ambitions for the children. Together with skilled teachers and learning support staff we have made a difference and have so many plans to continue to do so.
Finally, if you are a prospective parent or employee, I would highly recommend that you come to visit the school to see us first hand. We provide regular tours around the school for this purpose. Please contact the office on 020 8422 5070 for more details.
Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is! – Anne Frank
