Profile - Donna Dry
I have taught in Schools in Barking and Dagenham, Thurrock and am now based in a school in Basildon. I have been fortunate to teach across the primary phase and have many years’ experience in Year 6. Since 2009, I have been Deputy Headteacher and have had many areas of responsibility including Science Lead, English Lead and Healthy Schools Lead. I have overall responsibility for our curriculum; delivering CPD and monitoring the provision and impact of subject leaders. I am highly committed to improving outcomes for children and believe in empowering staff to help achieve this. I facilitated in the school gaining enhanced healthy schools status and the Primary Science Quality Mark (silver) award. I have mentored unqualified teachers and NQT’s and am currently involved in providing termly training across the trust I belong to, for teachers preparing for UPS.
I enjoy a challenge and look for innovative approaches that can lead to whole school improvement.
