Assistant Regional Director, Ofsted South East Region
My work covers inspection in our schools, early years, children’s social care and post-16 remits. I am responsible for ensuring inspections and regulatory work in all of these areas is completed to a high quality. I play a central role in our liaison work with those on whose behalf we inspect: the children and parents of the south east region, and with those who provide the services which Ofsted inspects and regulates. My background is in fine art; I trained as a painter and then taught in schools and in teacher education at a university. I became one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors in 2004. I live in Lewes in East Sussex.
