I am Headteacher at The Children’s Hospital School in Leicester providing education to all pupils missing school due to physical and/or mental health across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We teach in hospitals, CAMHS inpatient units, at home and in our 80-place AP secondary school. The school was judged outstanding in all areas by OFSTED in July 2017.
I have more than 25 years teaching experience including the last 11 years in senior leadership posts across secondary, special and hospital education. I am chair of the National Association for Hospital Education (NAHE) and a member of the National SEND Forum.
