Selina Midgley-Wright

Selina joined the Trust in 2009 to take up post as an Early Years Foundation Stage Leader. The majority of her teaching experience has been in EYFS and Key Stage 1 and she has lead on areas such as Phonics, LAC and safeguarding. Selina is an SLE and is currently undertaking her NPQH.

There is no such thing as an average day for Selina. What she loves about her role is that it can be very varied. She always make sure she is on the playground to greet children at the beginning of the day and also sneak in a chance to listen to children across the academy read. After greeting children she prepares and delivers whole school assemblies and then the rest of the day may vary from working in classes developing teaching and learning, supporting subject leaders or meeting with external agencies that provide support to some of our most vulnerable pupils.

Selina is Mum to two girls; her eldest daughter loves dance so she can normally be found carrying her dance kit and following her around. Selina's youngest daughter has some additional needs which can be challenging but she believes it has helped her to understand the feelings of other parents with children with SEND. She has recently been trying to teach herself to knit and crochet, although she says she still has a long way to go before she's mass-producing scarfs and jumpers!

Selina says that Delta puts the children at the heart of everything, which is exactly how it should be. Challenge and expectations are high, as they should be. The collaboration across the Trust in phenomenal and the support from the Deputy CEO and the EP/AEP teams is exceptional. 

Being part of Delta means that as a Head of Academy you feel well supported; in some schools your support and CPD can get lost along the way.
