I am responsible for the ongoing development and management of the network, system security, telephony and all classroom and office IT equipment in a Primary and Secondary School within a Multi Academy Trust.

Providing daily support and assistance to all staff and students in all things IT, I also manage the whole school IT budget, IT procurement and projects, both IT and telephony, ensuring that they are completed on schedule and within the set budget.

I have excellent organisational and communication skills meaning that I excel at leading a highly efficient team, have a proven track record of ensuring the smooth running of IT systems and providing IT services that improve the efficiency and performance of a workplace.

I am highly motivated with three and a half decades of experience covering all business sectors, with the ability to build professional relationships and communicate well with Stakeholders.

In 2020/21 my primary focus has been implementing solutions and providing support to allow Teaching and Learning to continue remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The introduction of Microsoft Teams has allowed classes to continue during staff and student absences and full lock downs.

Making the schools 'covid safe' by converting existing systems to contactless and implementing new systems and services where needed has also been a priority during the various Covid-19 lock downs.
