Mrs S Midgley-Wright
I am incredibly proud to be the Head of Academy at Estcourt.
I am from Hull and was born on Preston Road and grew up on Bilton Grange Estate. I know the difference a caring and supportive school can make to the life of a child and a family. I am passionate about ensuring all our children reach their full potential, regardless of their starting points. I am also an advocate for children’s mental health and well-being.
I started teaching in 2016 and joined Estcourt as a class teacher and EYFS Leader in 2009. Before leaving Estcourt in 2016, I was the Designated Safeguarding Leader, LAC Designated Teacher, Phonics Leader and also the EYFS and KS1 Leader. In 2016, I was recruited to The Parks as a Vice Principal and then became the HoA in 2018. At the beginning of 2020 I returned to Estcourt to take up the role of Head of Academy. I have two daughters, my youngest child has additional needs. I feel that the experience of having a child with SEND has given me a greater understanding of the struggles families sometimes face.
