I have been working in schools for 27 years, most of which was spent in mainstream primary schools. My main interest while in mainstream was working with the children who had additional needs, particularly those with emotional and behavioural difficulties. After a period as a class teacher, I then worked as a SENCo for about 15 years before making the decision to move to CDPLS in 'January 2012.
School Business Manager
I am Julia Jordan, the School Business Manager and I manage the non-curriculum areas: finance, personnel, administration, site issues and health & safety. I've been working here since 2003 - at that time we were a small centre for 12 students. There's been lots of changes since then, but our conversion to a sponsored academy is by far the most exciting.
