Her main focus as headteacher has been to improve the outcomes at Barnton Community Nursery and Primary School, improving standards year on year, resulting in the school being in the top 5% of primary schools nationally.
Recently Annette has supported two local schools in difficulty, in her role as Local Leader of Education, bringing about rapid and sustainable improvement. All of this invaluable experience provides a sound basis on which to develop Weaver Trust.
Firmly believing in developing individuals and enabling them to become more effective Annette is committed to enabling school-to-school support. As Executive Headteacher her intention will be to support the substantive Headteacher in their role, assist in the development of staff across the schools and identify ways in which the Trust can facilitate, provide and develop school improvement. She is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Trust and is accountable to the Directors.
