Lee is Chief Executive at BDSIP. A highly passionate and committed leader, she is responsible for ensuring BDSIP delivers consistently excellent support on schools-led priorities across all our services.
Lee has extensive experience of curriculum leadership, inclusion and SEND, which began in a teaching assistant role in 1995. Throughout her career, whether as classroom teacher, middle or senior leader in mainstream or specialist provision, she has a proven track record of driving improvement in outcomes for all pupils, including the most vulnerable, most challenging or those with SEND, through high quality first teaching, engaging curricula, effective tracking and target setting, engaging parents and facilitating wider opportunities to succeed. Lee’s vision for inclusion in education is one where every member of the school community feels a sense of belonging; where individual intersectionality is acknowledged and valued for the richness it brings; and where both children and adults are supported with the tools they need to navigate challenge and experience success.
During her time at BDSIP, Lee has worked with the BDSIP Inclusion Team to secure a number of partnerships with well-respected experts, both nationally and internationally, to ensure that our family of schools access the most current training and support for best-practice approaches in inclusion. Her next project is to create a platform to showcase and celebrate the excellent school-based practices that BDSIP is privileged to be involved with as part of our service offer.
