Meet

Mrs Smith
Associate Director of Teaching and Learning

I have worked in inner city schools within Birmingham for the last 26 years and still get excited by effective learning and development of both pupils and staff. I have had the privilege to work and lead across the whole primary phase and love the challenges that all the different year groups present.

My passion throughout has been developing all things ‘Literacy’ and especially supporting teachers to develop their understanding and delivery of reading and writing. I strive for excellence as I believe that every pupil should have access to the best possible education in order to secure their future success.

As well as supporting teaching & learning, I will also oversee the valuable work that we do with students and volunteers ensuring that they are supported, guided and most importantly inspired to become the next generation of educators.

I am delighted to be working in this new role; I consider it a real privilege to be part of such a dedicated, committed and successful team.
