awaiting the outcome of a bid to become one of nine national ‘super teaching’ schools. Tina added: “Kingsbridge was one of only two schools in Devon that met the criteria to apply. “In addition to Teaching School status, Kingsbridge


Community College is a National Research School and that has allowed us to work with the Education Endowment Foundation, an organisation promoting evidence-based practice in education. This research is transforming the way teachers work in schools. It’s fan- tastic to be involved so closely with such an approach.” Kingsbridge also co leads the South West Teaching


Schools Alliance, which drives improvements across schools. Tina explained: “The Alliance gives opportunities


for heads, senior and subject leaders to meet up to coordinate best practices across the curriculum. “We have a


brilliant network of head teachers across Devon, with an openness and will- ingness to support each other. “There are dif- ficulties across education at the moment, with huge pressures on funding and real time cuts. Despite all the headline coverage of more money going into educa- tion there are more children going into school than ever before and so actually less money for each child. “This is particularly bad in Devon because the Govern-

ment’s national funding formula is not equal in all areas.” Education South West is a Rights Respecting Trust.


All schools in the Trust are committed to upholding the United Nations Convention on the Rights for the Child. Tina said: “We’re following this because we believe


strongly that it underpins how schools should work with young people. We want to promote their right to education which helps them to become the best version of themselves they can be. “Article 29 reads ‘Education must develop every


child’s personality, talent and ability to the full. We must encourage respect for human rights, parents, their own and other cultures and the environment.’ “For me that statement sums up my purpose as a


teacher and why I come into school every day.” As well as running two schools, Tina has three chil-


dren of her own. Her partner is also a deputy head. She laughed: “Our children are growing up in a busy household and are lucky their parents are always around for the school holidays. They will be attending Kingsbridge Community College as we’re in the catch- ment area. This is one of my core values for education – that all children should have a fantastic secondary school in their local area. It is their right and all staff will always work hard to achieve that together.”
