Like many heads, she fights the battle of red tape on a daily basis with tribunals, tenders, referrals, policies and procedures creating an ever-increasing administrative mountain – all necessary but hugely time-consuming and growing by the year. That said, she’s here for the children and young people in her care and every positive outcome achieved...
