My relationship with Westfield School commenced in September 2002, when I was appointed as the key stage 4/5 teacher; I became Head Teacher in September 2011.
Being the Head Teacher of an all-age special school definitely keeps a person busy, and I can honestly say no two years, or indeed days, are the same. I try to visit each class as often as possible to keep up to date with new faces, observe learning, and generally to see how everyone is getting on. Two of my own three children live away from home now, so I relish being part of the lives of 72 others!
It is a genuine privilege coming to work each day, and 21 years has definitely flown by, with hopefully many more to come.
