I joined the Trust in 2015 and am currently an Academy Improvement Lead for Primary.

Career history

Sandra is currently the Headteacher of Greenfields Primary School, a GOOD school based in Kettering.

In 2017, the school was ranked in the top 3% of schools in England for progress in reading, writing and mathematics and was also rated as one of the top five schools in Northamptonshire for the same measure.

The school was also recently crowned East Midlands Primary Champion at the prestigious TES Pupil Premium Awards, held at the House of Commons.
