King Edward's Witley announces the appointment of Mrs Sheila Butler, who joins the School as Head of Learning Support and SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator).

Mrs Butler studied History at the University of Cardiff before following a PGCE at Exeter University. She takes up the role at King Edward's Witley having held a Deputy SENCO position at Canon Palmer Catholic Academy, in Ilford, Essex. Mrs Butler brings extensive experience of working directly with pupils who might require specialist attention to help them meet their learning goals and is currently finalizing her Masters of Education: Inclusion and Special Needs.

Commenting on the new position, Mrs Butler says 'King Edward's Witley enjoys a strong reputation for its exceptional commitment to welcoming pupils from a broad range of academic, social, economic and cultural backgrounds and providing the necessary guidance to ensure each student has the opportunity to achieve their personal best. My role is essentially to enable all students to maximize their enjoyment of the academic opportunities open to them via the varied programme of studies on offer at the School. My decision to join the team here was greatly influenced by clear evidence of the nurturing culture that pervades the School and the compassionate community that has been created for any child attending King Edward's Witley. I am delighted to be playing a pivotal role in King Edward's pioneering approach to bringing valuable learning support to the independent school sector.'
