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 after moving from Dorset. I have worked in primary schools for 8 years before joining Bradley Barton and before this taught English to children in Italy and Japan and worked with children with special needs in America.
I am responsible for Data and Assessment, Pupil Premium, Computing and lunchtimes at Bradley Barton as well as being Deputy Head teacher and Deputy Designated Safeguarding officer.
I thoroughly enjoy my role at Bradley Barton and love the community I work in. I strive to support children to be life long learners who have a positive growth mindset.
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.
