I have been the Headteacher of Buckland CE Primary School for nearly seven years. My school joined the Faringdon Academy of Schools in November 2013. Since then we have seen huge gains in our resources, support network for premises, finance and IT and opportunities for pupil involvement and staff development. I have been on the governing body of two schools - currently as Headteacher on the Buckland board. This has given me a strong knowledge of the strategic role of Governors and the information which is useful for decision making.
I have also sat on the Public Relations Committee for the Academy over the past two years. I completed additional inspector training in 2015 which has given me an insight into the inspection process in schools and I currently contribute to the work of the Academy Improvement Team carrying out reviews across our schools. I am committed to the success and future development of the Academy.
