Mrs. Maddie Griffin, Headteacher
Mrs. Maddie Griffin
My name is Maddie Griffin and it was my pleasure to be appointed as the Head Teacher of Hadley Learning Community – Primary Phase, in 2017. Before joining HLC I worked in several large primary schools in Yorkshire and also supported primary schools to drive improvements in teaching and learning. I was an external moderator for the Local Authority and delivered teaching and learning development courses, offering school-to-school support. Teaching is my passion and I believe that that every child in my care has the right to the highest quality of education, giving pupils the skills to succeed in all they do. I strive to make school an inspirational haven for every student, where they are encouraged to make every second count and through perseverance and hard work, go from strength to strength and dream bigger every day.

I started my career teaching in a large village school in Shropshire before moving to Telford.
In September 2006 I was appointed to the Early Years Team Leader at HLC. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to lead a team of staff and children in a brand new school. During my time at HLC I have worked across the Early Years and Key Stage one, leading on Phonics and Reading. I was promoted to the role of Deputy Head Teacher in 2016.

HLC is where I began my teaching career ten years ago. Since then, I have taught right across the school and have enjoyed every minute of it. In the last couple of years, however, I have been one the schools Year 6 teachers. Over the years, I have also been able to share with the children my love of learning as the schools Science and More Able Lead. I love the wonder and challenge of teaching and in 2017 was appointed as one of the schools Assistant Headteachers. Here, I have responsibility for behaviour and the curriculum – two areas I am extremely passionate about. I aim to be a listening ear to all the children that attend HLC and this extends to parents as well. If you ever need to discuss anything, I am always at the Primary Entrance every day after school.

I recently moved from Cambridge to join Hadley Learning Community as Assistant Headteacher and SENDCo. Children are at the heart of any community and I believe that if school and learning inspires them, they will be motivated to succeed in life beyond. Every day is different and exciting and I thoroughly enjoy working with our parents and students.
