Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Alison Smith: Assistant Headteacher, Access & Inclusion

Alison Smith joined us in September 2020 in the brand new role of Assistant Headteacher for Access and Inclusion.

Alison started her teaching career as a primary teacher, first in the East Midlands and then in Oldham, moving on to a specialist teaching role supporting vulnerable children and young people with social, emotional and behaviour difficulties, eventually leading the Bradford LA Specialist Teaching Team. Most recently Alison led a designated specialist SEND provision in a Beckfoot Trust secondary school.

Alison is delighted to join the school at an exciting time, working with the team to further develop provision to support vulnerable students towards our goal of ensuring that all have opportunity to reach their potential.
