I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as headteacher at Brightside, and I am looking forward to moving our excellent school even further forward so that every child achieves their very best. The early years of a child’s education are the basis for their future learning, attitudes and expectations. I wholeheartedly agree with Brightside’s vision for each, individual pupil to be happy, well behaved and reach their potential in all aspects of their development.
I feel fortunate to be part of a Governing Body that has such a range of interests and expertise amongst them. This allows for different dimensions and viewpoints to our work which helps and supports us in our continuous strive for excellence.
Being a school governor allows me to influence the environment in which children spend a significant amount of their time. I would recommend it to anyone!
I have been a teacher at Brightside School since 2009. I started here as an NQT and I have taught year 1 and year 2 classes. I decided to become a staff governor to experience a different aspect of school life.
