Claire Varley

Director of Education

My role as Director of Education provides me with the opportunity to work within a great team across a range of schools who strive to give every child the best education and opportunities. I believe strongly in instilling in every child the belief that they can achieve whatever they set their mind to. If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together - that is what is so special about being in our Trust; we are all going far and we will all support each other to get there.

My key areas of responsibility include:
• To provide strategic leadership to school improvement across the Trust
• To monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of school improvement support
• To oversee a growing school improvement team, deploying team members to meet the needs identified
• Whole trust educational standards
• To provide quality assurance and school improvement support to a group of 4-6 schools, accountable for the performance of each school
• To contribute to the strategic vision, growth and development of the organisation
• Head teacher performance management (shared with CEO and DQASI team)
• Strategy for school improvement
