Meet our Executive Headteacher

As the Executive Headteacher I am privileged to work with an amazing group of adults and children who are striving together to ensure every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential and pursue the career of their choice. Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village is a positive all-through school and we pride ourselves on the relationships our staff have with our students, caring for them throughout their education. We also work closely with families to ensure that all our students are committed to learning and develop the character necessary to take advantage of all the opportunities we provide.

The unique opportunity to attend an all-through school means that our students benefit from establishing relationships that will last them their entire educational career. Providing leadership opportunities for students as they mentor others only enhances the experiences our young people have at DSLV.

We are proud to be an EACT school and we will open minds and open doors for our students, our staff and our communities by:

Having uncompromising aspirations for all

Living our values

Having the best people and investing in them

Understanding, celebrating and working with our communities

Both Headteachers, Ms Hadlow (Secondary) and Mrs Cadd (Primary), have an approach which is to inspire and engage learners through a wide range of positive learning experiences. We strongly believe that all learners can achieve their personal best with the right guidance, encouragement and support.

We actively promote opportunities to broaden student’s experiences whatever age through a wide variety of educational visits and we work with other agencies to deliver projects both on and off the school site.

We look forward to working in partnership with you in The DSLV community to improve the life chances of our young people.
