Ms Fiona KellyDirector of Primary Schools
Ms Fiona Kelly
I have been a Headteacher and Executive Headteacher in a diverse range of communities for over 13 years and have loved every minute of it! It is a privilege to be part of a profession that makes a difference.
A quality education prepares children to be active and caring world citizens in an ever-changing and diverse society. This means giving them the academic, thinking and life skills needed to succeed and flourish. This is achieved by providing high-quality teaching which encourages self-directed and self-motivated learning, as well as a broad, relevant curriculum and aspirational expectations.
As an educationalist, I am committed to ensuring that every child achieves their potential, regardless of their starting point, whilst also enjoying the process.
I am delighted to be working with the team at E21C and am dedicated to enabling the success, achievement and welfare of every child.
