Katherine Walker, Head of Education

Katherine’s teaching career began in mainstream primary school where she developed her passion for supporting children ‘to be the best they could’, helping them to reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives. This passion drove her to look more closely at the education of children who had additional needs leading to her becoming involved in teaching children with special needs and autism.

“I was keen to explore the best strategies for helping children with ASD to become more independent, learn key functional and educational skills, participate in a wider range of experiences and enjoy their time in school”.

Katherine later became an Assistant Head specialising in Inclusion and Safeguarding and from there moved on to becoming a Primary Advisor in Special Educational Needs and Safeguarding for a federation of schools.

“I was delighted to join Eagle House Group, starting as Deputy Head of Education, and  becoming Head of Education”.
