At MacIntyre School Wingrave we are delighted to welcome our new Principal, Fiona Veitch for the next academic year.
Fiona’s experience of working with children with autism and associated learning difficulties is vast and varied, which includes setting up and leading a school offering specialised and inclusive support for children with autism. Training staff to develop their understanding and perceptions of the needs of children with autism has always been a key feature of Fiona’s work. She holds on to the principle that an empathetic and skilled workforce is essential to developing high quality, targeted educational provision that enables the individual child or young person in question to develop beyond any pre-conceived notion of their potential. Working with families is also central to her ethos. One of her priorities is to create positive, supportive relationships that provide continuity for the child or young person.
She is committed to developing awareness and understanding of autism in the community so that children and young people have the best possible opportunities to lead fulfilling and independent lives.
Fiona said “I am excited to be leading the school forward in the next stage of its development. In the time I have been at Wingrave I have been so impressed by the quality of the relationships between staff and students and the level of commitment of the team who constantly give above and beyond. Everyone has proven themselves to be very resilient in the past few months: working hard to implement the changes that we have needed to drive the school forward in its aim to provide the best possible education for our young people. Their willingness and determination has been inspiring. In the new academic year we will build on the excellent practice that is already in place, developing our skills and knowledge and enabling our students to progress and achieve beyond expectations“.
