Meet our headteacher

Welcome to DSLV.  I am delighted to be able to take this opportunity to welcome you to our new website and to provide some brief information about our values and expectations.

I have been at DSLV since September 2015 as Head of Primary, Senior Vice Principal and now as Headteacher. In this time I have seen significant change across the academy, in particular I have been pleased to see a change in the way pupils value their teachers, their education, each other and themselves.

These changes were reflected in our last OFSTED inspection where we were judged good in all areas.

DSLV is an academy with huge ambitions, for itself and its pupils. We believe that ALL areas of learning are important. Because of this we are not only committed to key academic subjects which help pupils progress onto further study we have and will continue to:

  • Promote our involvement in national arts events such as the National Theatre.
  • Value and be involved in important local events such as the Women’s tour and Strictly Come Dancing
  • Commit to student involvement in technology based activities such as Green-Power racing.

At DSLV we take safeguarding children very seriously. As such, we have invested in 14 designated safeguarding professionals, from heads of Year and Phase, to a brilliant welfare team including two very experienced lead practitioners for safeguarding.

If you are considering joining us, I would welcome the opportunity to show you around our site and discuss further our plans and expectations.

Yours faithfully

Mrs Katie Towers
