Mrs. Sangha Pastoral curriculum and Language Lead
It has been a privilege working at Stanton Bridge for the last 8 years, with every year being different from the previous one, with its challenges and rewards. I have seen the school continue to transform, to move forward within the 21st century. Furthermore, it has made positive changes, to make a difference to the community that we serve. I believe that our pupils are at a great advantage to be taught in a focused and positive environment. I started working in Year 5 and further developed my experiences to take on additional roles and responsibilities. I am fortunate to work closely with an inclusive, supportive and dedicated team; who share the head teacher’s vision and expectations.
We are relentless in our common values to achieve our desired outcomes and have a drive to continually improve and reflect in teaching and learning. There are no limits on what we can achieve, when we work together. I also have the responsibility of French, P4C (Philosophy for Children), PSHCEE, R.E (which is embedded through P4C) and developing support staff. In the past I have also supported in an EAL project alongside one of the chair of governors.
I am passionate about my role, I ensure that I lead by example and always have time for my team no matter what support they require. I am driven by my desire, to ensure that every pupil reaches their potential, regardless of their background and that the highest quality of provision takes place in an enjoyable manner. I am excited for the challenges that lie ahead and will continue to strive and grow in my teaching/leadership role.
Mrs. Good Curriculum Leader
Working at Stanton Bridge for the last 7 years has been a pleasure. I joined the school when I graduated University and I have had the delight of developing my skills and knowledge through being part of a highly dynamic and motivating team. The children and community immediately made me feel welcome and to this day I love being part of our supportive, caring community.
During the past 7 years I have taught across the school, before then focusing my efforts on leading Key Stage One, after discovering that this age group is where my passion and skills lie. My first management role was leading and raising the profile of Music across the school. I discovered that management of a subject enables you to inspire other staff members of staff to become the best they can be. Leading on from this, I became the school Children’s University leader. This role enabled me to develop my strengths leading across the whole school, particularly communicating with and organising all members of staff. During this time I successfully completed my NPQML qualification.
Being passionate about the development of reading skills, particularly in younger children, has lead me to my current focus of ensuring that every child at Stanton Bridge becomes an enthusiastic and confident reader. Working alongside members of the SLT, I hope to inspire other members of staff, children and members of the wider community to have goals and aspirations. I also aim to provide knowledge to help them achieve these and reach their full potential.
My belief is that every child should have equal opportunities, and be in a setting that challenges, inspires and is relentless in every child becoming the best they can be. I truly believe that no goal is too big, and that the drive for excellence at Stanton Bridge will allow every child to do this. I am excited to continue shaping the lives of young people through my role in the senior leadership team, and I am privileged to work as part of such a supportive, motivating team who are all committed to providing the very best education for all children.
