Janet Jones (Director)

 

Janet has worked in the secondary sector of education for 40 years. She began her career as a linguist, was involved as a teacher trainer and over the past 20 years has worked as a successful senior manager in a variety of schools in Essex and elsewhere. As a headteacher she brought her experience to schools and communities where a fresh approach was required. Essentially a pragmatist, she understands the needs of the community around the school and she is committed to creating a quality service for students and their parents. Janet is also clear about providing a positive professional development environment for staff, to allow them to progress in their careers. Creating a vibrant, innovative and inclusive learning context is something she believes in very strongly and she can evidence from experience that this success strengthens communities and raises both expectations and outcomes. She believes that the ethos of the Legra Trust demonstrates the same values.
