Steven Brown
  • The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School (sponsored by Hays)
  • Clwyd Community Primary School
  • Swansea / Abertawe, West Glamorgan

Steve has developed the community aspect of this Swansea school by encouraging parents and the community to come together to benefit all pupils. His aim was always to promote change, breaking the cycle of unemployment by changing children’s attitudes towards work through enterprising projects.

He has encouraged regular enterprise projects including school coffee shops, pop-up shop, and an enterprise club run by Steve himself. His hands-on, positive attitude and encouragement have ensured that all staff were on board with his vision. He collaborates with all staff, parents and children and is viewed as an inspirational head teacher who supports and encourages everyone as being life-long learners. Yet through his modesty, he credits all the staff for their hard work without acknowledging ‘that we all work so hard because of Steve’.
