Paul Slater

Trumacar Nursery and Community Primary School

The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School

Morecambe, Lancashire

Paul’s infectious enthusiasm for learning and developing individual potential permeates not only across this Lancashire school but throughout the entire community.

Paul joined the school at a very difficult time where staff morale was low and parents had lost faith in the school. He has since built a school with an excellent reputation where families are queuing to get in.

His strength in leadership gives the community the security of knowing that he there for them to care, support and guide through children’s individual learning journeys.
