Lisa consistently goes above and beyond her duties; her greatest strength is in the exemplary way she leads the SEND provision. She has an excellent grasp of the needs of individual children and a strong ability to understand and empathise with vulnerable parents. In doing so, she is trusted and highly respected for championing the cause in both the local and the wider Bedfordshire community.

Believing that everyone has the right to be heard, seen and supported to be their best selves, Lisa works tirelessly to look for new and innovative ways to support children, especially those most in need.

However challenging a day has been, she will be seen smiling and calmly saying ‘Tomorrow’s another day and one step at a time!’
