As the school’s Deputy Headteacher my main responsibilities are the school curriculum, student tracking, target setting, performance review and ICT provision. I deputise for the Headteacher when appropriate and line manage the faculties of English, mathematics and humanities.
Inclusion is the key to a successful, happy and well-rounded individual. As the Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Inclusion my role is to ensure students and their needs are central to everything we do at WGS. I am the designated SENCO, I oversee Pupil Premium, Attendance and Punctuality of students, and Alternative Provision. Due to the nature of my work there is significant cross over with the pastoral care of students, in which I work closely with Mrs Greenfield.
As assistant head teacher responsible for the sixth form, I support our students with their transition from teenagers to young adults. I am also responsible for ensuring for the development of student leadership and representation throughout the school.
