My main areas of responsibility are key stage three pastoral care and behaviour management, and alternative provision.

I have worked with Shenley Academy students and their families for over a decade as a pastoral lead for Neptune College and most recently as a pastoral lead for year 7 and 8. I am very passionate about our local community and providing our young people with the skills, aspirations and opportunities to thrive and fulfil their potential.

Mr R Pearce Mr R Pearce Assistant Headteacher

My main areas of responsibility are data, assessment, pupil premium and teaching and learning.

My role includes leading on the effective use of assessment, which includes the formal tests and exams taken by students. Students in years 7-10 will have synoptic exams throughout the year and students in year 11 have mock examinations in both the autumn and spring terms. In addition to this, students will receive informal assessment on a weekly lesson cycle.  This is designed to ensure your child makes the highest level of progress.

The effective use of assessment data is key to any school; it is my role to ensure all stakeholders receive and use the data in appropriate format, so that it is can be used to support student progress across the school. Using the data effectively ensures we are able to best support every student in the school in making the highest level of academic progress. Where a student data suggests their progress needs accelerating we are able to plan effective intervention.

One of the significant areas of my role is the supporting our pupil premium students on their educational journey. We are aware of the challenges pupil premium students face and implement strategies to overcome these. Within my role it is imperative I ensure pupil premium students are given the best possible education, this is done through the careful monitoring of their education and ensuring effective intervention when needed. In addition to this I work to ensure pupil premium students are given the best possible life experiences to support their development into becoming global citizens.  

Mr S Richardson Mr S Richardson Assistant Headteacher

I am a strong believer in continuous improvement. Fitting well with this belief, my areas of responsibility include the quality assurance and development of teaching and learning; overseeing the Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) and Initial Teacher Trainee (ITT) Programmes; Staff Coaching and I also line manage Lead Practitioners, as well as the Leaders of English and Humanities.

Mr D Thacker-Smith Mr D Thacker-Smith Assistant Headteacher

My role is about ensuring that students not only grow academically at Shenley but also develop their characters.

I take pride in the extensive and diverse range of opportunities we offer for students to develop and discover their talents and interests. It is essential that we are developing pupils’ confidence and resilience so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy and are ready to flourish when they leave us for their next phase of education.

Furthermore, my role is about ensuring we prepare students for life in modern Britain. For me it is an imperative that we arm our students with the knowledge and skills to become responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to society while developing their understanding of fundamental British values and appreciation of diversity.

My Role also involves being an advocate Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development across the school and our local community. Success for me involve raising aspirations and inspiring students to develop a strong, ambitious and resilient sense of self.

In previous roles working in South London and Worcestershire I have gained experience acting as a Staff Governor, Raising Standards Leader, Head of Year, Head of House and Head of Department. I have also held responsibilities within SMSC, Character Education and Raising Aspirations and have been awarded my NPQSL through the Institute of Education in London.
