About Us

Excellence and Enjoyment for All

Gateford Park is a slightly smaller than average sized primary school, serving the community of Gateford, on the outskirts of Worksop. I came to the school in 2005 as a class teacher and was appointed Headteacher in May 2014, having been the Deputy Headteacher for the previous three years.

When I became Deputy, following the appointment of our previous Headteacher around five years ago, along with a drive to raise standards, one of our key priorities was to develop excellent relationships with parents, because for a variety of reasons, these had deteriorated over the years. One of our first initiatives was to sign up for the Leading Parent Partnership Award, recognised as a national standard for effective parent partnership. With the support and trust of parents, a school can truly begin to thrive. So, I took the lead on the project and we were the first school in the area to gain the award, in May 2013. That was a real turning point for our school.
