Emily MartinDirector of SEND

Since training with Teach First in 2009, I’ve held a number of positions spanning both Curriculum and Pastoral provision, including Teacher Coach, Curriculum Leader and Head of House.

I’ve also had a number of responsibilities as an Assistant Headteacher, both at Ecclesfield and my previous school, including SEND, Literacy, Curriculum (Timetable, Options and the Alternative Learning Pathway), transition, Vocational studies, intervention and KS3 progress. I have been an Assistant Headteacher at Ecclesfield Secondary since 2014.

My key areas of strength and expertise are the strategic leadership of provision for students who require additional support, including the implementation of research-based interventions.

What I do:

As a new member of the central team, I offer support and work in collaboration with my SEND colleagues across the Trust to ensure we have inclusive provision which enables all our students to succeed.

I can help with:

Any queries relating to SEND policy, provision and practice including provision mapping, assessment and screening, tracking and monitoring, quality first teaching and governance.
