I am proud to be the head teacher at Shenington Church of England (VA) Primary School. I am in the fortunate position to be able to say that I love my job and I am blessed to work with my "high performing team", as Ofsted noted in March 2016. All of my staff are dedicated, committed, caring and incredibly hard working. We are a team who really care about each other and this reflects in our care for the children and families.
I have been in education for almost twenty five years, mostly as a full time teacher and a head teacher for nearly ten years. I have been in senior leadership for nearly twenty years and a subject coordinator for most of my career.
Shenington Church of England (VA) Primary School is caring and inclusive, whilst recognising individuality. We welcome children from all faiths and aim for them to enjoy school life and be happy, with enquiring minds and a willingness and desire to work; so that they reach their full academic potential through education of the highest quality in a safe and stimulating environment.
We believe in a successful partnership between parents, children, teachers and governors, sharing a common desire for learning, achieving high standards and supporting excellence through endeavour.
In February 2011, Ofsted noted that "we were a happy harmonious school". Our latest Ofsted inspection in March 2016 praised "the high expectations" in our school and my "aspirational" role. I can only be aspirational with a team who are aspirational themselves and so I praise them for helping me to create the strong Christian and British values, ethos and vision which we nurture within our school.
Being a teacher is a joy; working with my team and our pupils is a gift to be cherished.
