A little about myself

I have worked at Cliffdale Primary Academy for the past six years as part of the Site Team ensuring that our school environment is a safe place for staff and children. I have a son who is severely Autistic and therefore have a good understanding and a clear insight of what parents experience with children who have additional needs. Prior to working at Cliffdale Primary Academy, I worked for twelve years as a Day Service Officer for Social Services with adults who had physical disabilities. This included roles like Care Management, Adult Tutoring in Literacy, Numeracy and IT, managing woodwork department amongst other roles. During this time I also worked with people who had experienced traumatic brain injuries which was very rewarding.

What excites me about my role

I am very much a people person and I enjoy the interaction with staff and children at Cliffdale. My job is very hands on and no two days are the same. I like to become involved in other aspects of the school, for example helping out with the Christmas and Summer Shows, J Rock, making props for these shows and helping out at the school Fayres.
