Inclusion & Family Liaison 

Deputy Safeguarding Lead

Hi my name is Kathy. 

I started working in education in the EYFS Early Years, but then progressed to working with children from 2-18 with my roles within the Local Authority. 

 I have worked in the Complex Behaviour Team, and then Education Inclusion, supporting young people and their families in their education journey. I also worked with the Young Carer’s Team on a 9-month secondment. 

In my spare time I walk my energetic dog Kippa who likes to share my cups of tea and be known as Mr Kips, and I enjoy horse riding lessons -my current target is to stay on the horse for the entirety of the lesson.!!

I also became a Grandma in June last year! 

I am looking forward to working with and being part of the Act Fast team and getting to know both the staff and pupils. 


Inclusion Administrator

"Hi, my name is Sue. I have worked in administration for many years in different sectors. I also have a lot of experience working in the care sector, having worked with a variety of clients, all with very different needs over the years. I spent 7 years at a SEN school, working as a Teaching Assistant and then later as an Educational Health Care Assistant, providing educational and medical support to the more complex students. 

Following my time working at school, I went to work at a friend's Construction company and was the Director's PA and looked after the accounts and admin. Working with children is where my heart lies, so when I was made redundant, I was lucky enough to come to work at Act Fast. I am happy here; the students and staff have been very welcoming. I am looking forward to the future here and to being a part of the school's exciting journey!

Head of Maths

"Hi, my name is Jon, or JC to most people, and I’ve spent the last 27 years in education, initially as a teacher of maths and PE, moving on to become Head of Maths, Assistant Head and Deputy Head in a variety of schools across the region before working as a part of the core team for a large Multi Academy Trust. 

Away from work I’m passionate about rugby and motorsport.  Whilst age and injuries now prevent me from playing rugby, I still manage to squeeze into my Caterham 7 race car at circuits around the UK throughout the Summer.

I’m looking forward to contributing to the success of students here at Act Fast! "


Sport & PE Instructor

"Hi, my name is Luke. I have 3 years experience working as a teaching assistant in secondary education within a variety of subjects. I have always had an interest in sport and I am currently working towards my teacher training qualification and I am excited to be a part of Act Fast."
