Sanum is an Assistant Headteacher who leads on PSHE, Careers and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Her academic background is in Philosophy (BA and MA) and she has successfully led both a PSHE/Citizenship department as well as a Religious Studies one in previous posts. She is based in Buckinghamshire and has experience in single sex (boys), co-ed, comprehensive and grammar schools. Sanum works closely with the local SCITT and PGCE students at King’s College London to support teachers early in their career. She has presented at local and National events, alongside external agencies as well as representing her own practices and is driven by a desire to make the education system work for all. As a leader, Sanum believes in growing others and nudging norms. She is not shy of seeking progressive and atypical solutions but does advocate that, where change is needed, it must be planned in such a way that it is sustainable.
