Miss Watkinson, SENCO & Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leader

I have been a teacher since 1998.  During this time, I worked in Harrogate and spent 5 years at a large international school in Thailand where I was also Deputy Head.   Since returning to the UK, I have  worked at Coppice Valley as SENCo.  I am also an Associate Lecturer with the Open University and a school governor at a local school; both roles complement my work here at Coppice Valley very nicely.
