Monique has been in the Education sector for 21 years, working in Ireland and England. In addition to this Monique has worked in customer service management and recruitment. Throughout her time as a teacher she has worked in schools with specialist provisions for children with social, communication and language needs and behavioural needs and has a passion for this area of children’s development.
As both a Deputy and Head teacher Monique has worked in areas of high deprivation and with her drive and determination, ensured that these schools gave the children the opportunity to thrive and succeed. As a school leader, she forms effective teams and creates a clear shared vision for the school. Monique’s drive and energy is at the heart of school improvement.
Since joining the Trust in January 2017 as the Headteacher of The Academy of Cuxton Schools, the schools have secured 2 Ofsted judgements of Good and Good with outstanding features. Monique ensures that all resources the school has to offer are used effectively. The school grounds are used for learning on a daily basis with Forest school sessions for all year groups all year round.
Monique’s drive to ensure all children can access learning means that Cuxton schools have a local reputation of being fully inclusive. She is very proud that the school holds the Inclusion Quality Mark and that the team at Cuxton are able to learn alongside a diverse range of children.
