Reema Reid
  • The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School
  • Hollydale Primary School
  • London

Reema has a track record of leading struggling schools to success and building a truly community focused education. She is acutely sensitive to the need for primary schools to cut across the social and cultural diversity of the city to provide an inclusive educational experience for all pupils. As headteacher, she has been at the forefront of tracking initiatives that have ensured that the school can respond to the challenges of a changing pupil demographic, and is driven by continuous school improvement.  

She is a part of Southwark’s Teaching School Alliance focussing on coaching and mentoring ethnic minority teachers to take up leadership roles in their schools, and has empowered many BAME educators and pupils to follow in her footsteps.
