I started at The Oaks Academy in 2008 as an English teacher and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else now. I am an advocate of raising the literacy skills of our young people to empower them in the community once they leave us. 

My passion has always been Special Educational Needs and the pastoral care of pupils. I qualified as a specialist SEND Coordinator in 2015 and I have 11 years of experience in special educational needs. I am currently SENCO at The Oaks Academy, working with a team of  dedicated Teaching Assistants  to ensure young people and their families are given the help and support they deserve. 

I am passionate about diversity and inclusion, overcoming barriers, and achieving in the face of adversity.
