Biography

I am the Assistant Headteacher and Inclusion Leader at Mayflower Primary School, an outstanding and highly inclusive primary school in the heart of the East End of London. I'm passionate about the inclusion of autistic children and young people in schools and always interested to hear about ways in which we can keep improving at this. As well as leading inclusion in my existing school, I am also seconded as a deputy regional lead at Whole School SEND (a consortium hosted by the National Association for Special Educational Needs). I'm also very interested in autistic self-advocacy, and how we can meaningfully include autistic people in decision-making in schools and beyond. I am undertaking a PhD at University College London CRAE (Centre for Research in Autism Education), exploring ways in which to improve home-school collaboration for caregivers of autistic pupils from ethnic minority backgrounds.
