May 18, 2023

Blewbury Primary School are thrilled to announce the appointment of Sam Coleman as the new Assistant Head Teacher and SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) due to start in September 2023.

Mr Coleman will bring his expertise and passion for education to our school community, working closely with staff and pupils to provide the best possible educational experience.

In his role as the most senior member of staff after the Head Teacher. Mr Coleman will be responsible for curriculum development and will work with Miss Reeder to support teaching and learning across the school. As SENCO, he will have dedicated time to help identify and support pupils who may need additional support and facilitate the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ cycle that takes place with teachers throughout the year. He will also be the main contact to liaise with a range of professionals. We are confident that with his wealth of experience in the education sector, having previously worked as a teacher and English Lead in two primary schools and currently as a SENCO at a secondary school in Oxford, Mr Coleman’s fresh ideas and perspectives will benefit our school community and enable us to provide an even richer and more exciting curriculum to our pupils.

Outside of school, he enjoys spending time in nature, visiting bookshops and the theatre. He currently lives in Abingdon with his wife, daughter, and two very boisterous kittens.

We look forward to welcoming Mr Coleman to Blewbury Primary School, and we invite you to join us in congratulating him on his appointment. He will be a fantastic addition to our team and contribute to our shared vision of providing high-quality education and support to all our pupils.
