Academy Advisory Group
Castle Mead School is part of The Mead Academy Trust. The responsibility for the strategic management of the school is shared between the Head of School, the Board of Directors and the Academy Advisors. The Academy Advisors support the school and has a general responsibility for the strategic management of the school. They are not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the school – that is the function of the Head of School.

I have been a freelance education consultant since January 2010, after 22 years as a Headteacher of a rural primary school, including designation as a National Leader of Education, followed by 3 years as an acting headteacher providing interim leadership in a Special Measures Junior school. I remain passionate about working with schools, to support them in their relentless drive to raise standards, amidst the plethora of challenges they currently face.
I am a primary school teacher, teaching since 2003 in mainly Key Stage 2. As an Academy Advisor I would like to help and contribute to provide the best education for pupils at Castle Mead. Within my role of Academy Advisor, I have a particular interest and responsibility for Art and Music.
