Ms Bennett has nearly 30 years of experience in education, having worked as a class teacher in Primary and Nursery schools through to headship. She has also worked for two London boroughs as a Senior School improvement advisor for Early Years and has trained teachers and teaching assistants for the last 16 years in every aspect of the EYFS and beyond.
Her passion drives her to give young people the absolute best experiences available and to plant high-quality seeds for learning, tending to them daily and watching them grow. Her background in science coupled with her father’s work in engineering inspired her to develop a STEAM curriculum for the children in her Nursery school in Brixton, London, five years ago. As a headteacher in an area of high disadvantage, she developed something powerful and beneficial to the young people and staff she worked with. To Ms Bennett, knowing that you have potentially inspired a new astronaut, civil engineer, aeronautical engineer or creative designer is how everyone should feel at the end of their working day.
