Mike has a vast array of experience having worked within the residential SEMH sector for many years, joining Wings shortly after opening back in 2003.
He believes that the key to achieving the best outcomes for children is to build and maintain positive relationships with them and their significant others including parents, carers and other professionals.
Working alongside both Education and Care teams, Mike acts as the link between the two in order to ensure that the social, emotional and behavioural needs of the children are catered for.
In addition to this he is the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) lead for the setting which requires him to oversee person centred planning for each child in order to support them to improve the quality of their lives.
Outside the work he enjoys motorcycling, kayaking and caravan holidays near and far with his family.
I am very passionate about all children having a great education and experience at school.
I have been a teacher for twenty two years and taught various subjects including Geography, French, Health and Social Care and Travel and Tourism.
My personal belief is that every pupil has the potential to succeed and as educators, we have a moral responsibility to ensure that this happens. Every pupil has their unique set of talents and at Wings, we encourage this. We are a learning community that strives for the best for all of our pupils.
