Donna Lee is committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning and feels children deserve to have teachers who believe in them and have high expectations of all their pupils. It is Donna’s belief that every child should have the opportunity to be the best they can be.
She expects staff in every lesson to make each child in the class shine through quality first teaching. Donna has been an Inclusion Coordinator for over 20 years since qualifying as a teacher from Durham University.
Inclusion and individualised learning were her focus for an MA in Special Educational Needs and NPQH.
In 2013-2014, she led the school as Acting Deputy Headteacher in obtaining the NACE Challenge Award for the first time.
She then became Headteacher of the school in January 2018 immediately leading the team through an Ofsted Inspection, where they continue to be a good school.
She has also led the school through NACE Re-accreditation assessments in July 2018 and July 2021 and Inclusion Quality Mark assessment in 2016 and 2019.
