Primary Lead, KS3 Nurture

Joanne Weatherstone

Joanne Weatherstone

I have been with ALP since 2015 and remain as passionate about my role within school as the day I started. I strive to provide a nurturing, bespoke and flexible educational pathway for all of our young people and actively seek new, fresh ways of working.   I truly believe that a child’s learning differences should not prevent them from achieving and fulfilling their own personal potential.  In addition to my role as Base lead which incorporates primary, lower key stage three and our Nurture provision, I am also our communication champion – ensuring that our school remains communication friendly and that all pupils have access to the correct level of support.  This can vary from communication based role play to timetabled speech and language sessions utilising guidance from our nominated SALT.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends – particularly over good food which links to my love of all things food related!   At home, we have a growing brood of animals which keep me outdoors and physically active.
