Welcome to Moorfield learning Centre. My name is Robin Adams and I am delighted to introduce myself as the Head teacher at Moorfield Learning Centre.
For the past 20 Years I have undertaken various Senior Leadership roles including being a Head teacher for over 9 years.
The school provides a vibrant, positive and nurturing environment, putting the young person at the heart of everything we do. We provide a range of education and pastoral experiences preparing our young people aged 11-17 for their future. Parents and carers will find a dedicated, committed staff team who build positive, trusting relationships with our young people in a calm learning environment allowing them to overcome any barriers to learning.
I feel extremely fortunate to be joining the school community at this time. I will work tirelessly to further embed the school ethos, preserve the uniqueness of the school and enable our young people to have memorable and life changing experiences that they will look back upon with great fondness and happiness as they grow into adulthood.
Visitors are always welcome at Moorfield Learning Centre and I invite you to come and have a look around and see our school in action.
It is my great pleasure to be associated with Moorfield Learning Centre as an external education consultant. I have been involved from an early stage, and have watched with pride and great interest as this unique provision has translated from a vision into a reality. Those who have shaped Moorfield know that there are many young people for whom traditional education in a school setting does not work. Staff at Moorfield are committed to ensuring that all young people receive the education they need and deserve, in a setting that acknowledges the challenges they face and the barriers to their learning.
I was approached by the senior management team to support Moorfield so that the education experiences that are provided are rigorous, appropriately challenging and relevant to life and living. Over my career I have always been involved in education. I am passionate about settings that approach teaching and learning in a creative way, and that place the young people at the heart of all that they do. As well as working in mainstream education provisions, I have had twelve years’ experience of running a special school for young people with autism and learning difficulties. This taught me how important it is to treat young people as individuals and not to assume that ‘one size fits all’. I believe this ability to respond to individual young people is one of Moorfield’s greatest strengths. For thirteen years I worked as an Ofsted inspector. Hopefully I can use some of these skills to help Moorfield to focus on its next steps for development so that it continues to go from strength to strength.
I am confident Moorfield will quickly develop into the inspirational and exceptional learning provision that I know it can be. I am absolutely delighted to be able to work alongside such a dedicated and imaginative staff team and to have the opportunity to engage with young people who recognise they have been given a ‘second chance’ to learn.
