West Therapy Teams update March 2020 re COVID 19 measures


As well as being BEST’s CEO and a Trustee, I am the Headteacher of Riverwalk School. I have been a Headteacher since 2005, building upon my extensive experience of teaching in Specialist provisions in London, Surrey, Hampshire and Norfolk.  I qualified to teach in specialist education in 1984, then awarded my MA in 2002. 

I am passionate about the education of children who need an innovative and inspirational approach to learning, engaging with research and the professional development of those providing the learning environment. I am an active member of the Federation of Leaders in Special Education, and attend the SEND Forum in London.
