Assistant Head - Pastoral
Becky has a first class honours degree in English Education and has been at Northease Manor since 2012. Whilst training for her degree, she worked in several special educational settings including pupil referral units and primary settings. Based on her experience and passion Becky decided Special Educational Needs was the area of work where she could make the greatest contribution.
As Assistant Head for Pastoral and Welfare her educational philosophy is firmly based around the principle that students are at the heart of all decisions. Becky's very strong values drive her absolute commitment that Northease is safe, secure and nurturing. Our students have the best possible environment and delivered in a way that they can make maximum progress, whatever their individual needs.
Assistant Head, Designated Safeguarding Lead; Head of Compliance, Data and Health & Safety
EvaLynne has numerous specialist qualifications and as the Designated Safeguarding Lead she oversees this critically important area of school life with deep personal expertise. She has been a trainer and consultant on safeguarding and child protection since 2006, and also sits on the Local Safeguarding Children Board.

Like Becky Tuxford, EvaLynne's fundamental belief is that our students are at the heart of everything we do. They work closely to ensure that staff, policies, systems and practices are the very best they can be. As she says, Northease is simply a magical place to work.
