I have been the Head of School of St Newlyn East Learning Academy since September 2017, previously I was the Assistant Head. Prior to joining St Newlyn East, I was an Assistant Head at a large primary school in St Austell where I responsible for Curriculum, Literacy and Key Stage 2. I have had experience of working in a range of different size schools in Plymouth and Cornwall. I taught Year 6 for many years but have also taught across the primary age range.
I thoroughly enjoy working with the LAB as they make valuable contributions to our children’s education and the local community that we serve. Every member of the LAB brings their own experiences and perspectives of education therefore ensuring there is a balance and diversity of knowledge, skills and experience enabling them to be an effective driving force to improve our school. They support and challenge the school to ensure it runs effectively as possible whilst working alongside the senior leadership team. They also support the teachers to aid them to provide an excellent education to the children.
Tania Findlay - Staff Governor
I am the Assistant Headteacher, Yr. 6 teacher and a KTSA Specialist Leader in Education for English-I lead literacy across the school. I have worked for the trust since 2013 when I began my NQT year at St. Newlyn East Learning Academy. After two years here, I then when on to complete school improvement in other schools around the trust and returned to SNELA last year.
As a Staff LAB member, it is important that I contribute to whole school initiatives and development in a strategic way on behalf of the staff. I feel that being a LAB member gives me a great opportunity to do this whilst also seeing the bigger picture of school life. As the Assistant Head teacher, it is important to be able to explain and present ideas and thoughts of the Senior Leadership team to the LAB and to be held accountable for the results that those ideas may bring. I look forward to being an active and informative member.
