Crackley Hall Appoints New Academic Assistant Head
Pupils and staff will be welcoming a new member to the school’s leadership team in September. Sharon McAloon, an experienced teacher and senior leader, has been appointed Assistant Head of Academic and Key Stage 2.
Ms McAloon brings a wealth of experience to her new role having played a significant part in the development and management of a number of primary schools. Ms McAloon will be joining us from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Southam where she has been working as a senior leader and teacher with responsibilities across the curriculum. She has nearly 15 years of experience of teaching at Key Stage 2 and on leading schools programmes on Mathematics, Literacy, Special Educational Needs and Gifted and Talented. She has also worked in Switzerland at La Cote International School.
As a member of the senior leadership team, she will work closely with the Headmaster and colleagues to ensure that pupils achieve to the very best of their abilities.
Explaining her approach to learning, Sharon McAloon comments, “A child's happiness is intrinsic to their personal and academic growth. Staff must know every single pupil as an individual and put their happiness and welfare first and from that success flows. I am delighted that I have been given the opportunity to lead on Academic and Key Stage 2 at Crackley Hall. I look forward to working with all of the parents and staff, but my main aim will be to engage Crackley’s pupils with an enthusiasm for learning.”
Rob Duigan, comments, “We are delighted that Sharon has accepted the position of Assistant Head, Academic and Key Stage 2. When interviewing her for the role I was impressed with how her passion for the curriculum was balanced with her philosophy that achievement sits alongside pastoral wellbeing, an ethos which is echoed here at Crackley Hall. She will be a key figure in the future of our teaching provision at Crackley and the education of the children here. I wish her well in her new role.”
