We have a new Senior Leadership Team at Bradley Barton and below is information on the team and what we are all responsible for:
Ms J Barton - Headteacher
I am a fully qualified Primary teacher who has worked in several Devon and Torbay schools prior to starting at Bradley Barton as Headteacher in September 2008. I hold the NPQH qualification and have held school leadership posts in 3 other local schools and have also worked as a maths advisory role for the Local Authority.
I have very high expectations of all children and staff and am very proud of the happy and successful school we have developed together. We strive to work with parents as partners as they are essential in a child's learning journey.
As well as leading the Senior Leadership team and working very closely with our School Governors I am also the Senior Designated Safeguarding Officer at Bradley Barton.
Mr A Wootton
I joined Bradley Barton in January 2017 from a school in Dorset.
Within school I am leading Lower KS2 this year as well as managing assessments for the whole school and organising Pupil Premium support. A key part of my role is to work alongside stakeholders of our school (Staff, Governors, Parents and Children) to ensure all children have an enriched and fulfilling time in school that provides them with skills and knowledge to be lifelong learners.
Mrs V Keating - School Business Manager
I joined the school 2 weeks before the summer holidays in 2015.
I am responsible for all things that are not Teaching and Learning at Bradley Barton; Health & Safety, Finance, HR, Facilties, ICT, Administration and Business Development. I also work closely with the Governors on the School Development Plan and am also the Staff Governor on our Governing Body.
Mrs H Rose - SENDCo
I work closely with Senior Leaders, Governors, Class Teachers, LSA's, a variety of external agencies and, most importantly, children and their families to develop effective personalised provision which meets pupils individual needs within Devon's framework. Inclusion is fundamental to Bradley Barton's ethos and whether children have needs which relate to their cognition and learning; social, emotional or mental health; speech, language and communication or physical development we have high expectation of their ability to progress and suceed.
I also work as part of the team responsible for behaviour and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). I lead the PSHE curriculum and ensure that all children learn about being healthy, developing good social skills and staying safe. I also support promoting pupils' attendance at Bradley Barton.
I am also the Deputy Designated Child Protection Officer at Bradley Barton.
Miss L Lean
I joined Bradley Barton in 2012 as a newly qualified teacher. My teaching specialism is Early Years and I have spent my time at Bradley Barton implementing and teaching the Early Years curriculum to our Nursery and Reception children. This year I will lead this age phase and continue to be one of two reception class teachers. I am also responsible for developing partnerships with parents and carers and working with our local community to provide a range of opportunities for the children, families and our school community.
Mrs R Marks
I officially joined Bradley Barton in September 2016. I relocated to Devon from Gloucestershire, where I have taught for many years across the primary age range, with a range of leadership roles. At Bradley Barton, as well as teaching Songthrushes Class, I lead the KS1 Team. I have a shared responsibility for PSHE and behaviour across the school.
Miss K Haycock
I joined the Bradley Barton team in 2014 as a class teacher. As well as teaching Peregrines class in September 2015 I will also be leading the Year 5/6 age phase which is made up of 3 classes. I am also responsible for the Curriculum for the whole school supporting subject leaders to successfully lead and develop their subjects. As part of this I am also part of the literacy team.
