As the Headteacher of Alexander McLeod, it is my aim to ensure the school continues striving for excellence and being at the forefront of innovative and inspiring learning. My aim is to ensure that our children are confident, independent learners who uphold the British values we promote in our school. I have been in education now for 15 years and my passion is ensuring that all children have access to a high-quality curriculum and learning opportunities. I believe that all children are capable of great things if they are given the right environment to flourish in.

I was appointed Deputy Head in January 2019 having previously been an Assistant Head and Early Years Leader at Alexander McLeod. One of my many roles is to work with the head-teacher and leadership team in the development of engaging, challenging learning opportunities for our children within a rich and varied curriculum. As a Designated Safeguarding Officer, I work closely with our Family Engagement Officer in maintaining and developing family links and establishing supportive relationships with parents and carers. I have a strong commitment to improving the life chances of all pupils at our school. I truly believe that education can transform lives and that our core role as a school, is to show children that they have the power within themselves to learn and achieve through hard work, resilience and self-belief.
