Amy is an Assistant Headteacher and outstanding practitioner at this Surrey school with enhanced learning provision for students with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and speech and language communication difficulties (SLCD).  She is described by her colleagues as a caring, compassionate leader. 

Amy has worked relentlessly in developing excellent SEND provision through her work with students, staff and the community. Amy started at the school as a HLTA in supporting SEND students with language and literacy. She then spent time in gaining qualified teacher status and has led on whole-school language and literacy development as a lead practice.  

Her dedication to SEND education over 9 years here has been second-to-none. She is flourishing as Assistant Headteacher responsible for inclusion and inclusive practice across the school.  

In 2022, Amy launched SEND transition days for Year 6 SEND students from feeder primary schools to witness taster sessions of extended curriculum interventions. Amy also supports parents with SEND coffee mornings, SEND drop-in sessions and 1:1 meetings with parents.
