Mrs Helen Halliday
Deputy Headteacher - Assessment & Curriculum Leader
Hello! My name is Mrs Halliday and I am the Deputy Headteacher here at Gladstone Road Primary School. I have worked here for a number of years now (almost 12 years) and that is because it is an absolute pleasure to work in such a dynamic environment and within such a warm and amazing community.
Every day is different and my role entails an array of different things but what I particularly enjoy is the time I spend with the children when I visit classrooms. Each and every day I visit several if not all classrooms to say hello to the children. What inspires me most and makes me feel incredibly happy is how the children at Gladstone Road love to learn and love to be at school. They are all so proud of their achievements no matter how great or small. Another highlight for me is when I take the Year 6 children to London for 4 days in the Summer term. Although tiring, it is the most spectacular trip I have ever taken children on and I have worked in several schools.
We visit all the sights, go to a theatre show and visit Harry Potter World as well as many other things! This is definitely one of my favourite things I do as part of my role.
I also enjoy working with a team of staff who are constantly striving to provide the very best education we can for all of our children. We are all very proud to be part of the Gladstone Road team. As a Mum of two children myself, I know how important this is for you as parents and carers.
Please take time to view our website and don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the team for any further information.
