A warm welcome from Mrs Godbold

I was Executive Head teacher at Knayton C of E Academy from 2014, which was graded Outstanding in 2017. I have been actively involved in the creation of the Trust, and developed the teaching, learning and assessment policy adopted by Elevate’s Academies. In addition, I am a School Improvement Lead for Elevate, leading on CPD through the North Star Teaching Alliance. As Executive Head teacher, I work across Keeble Gateway and Thornton Dale CE Primary Academy. I have been involved with Keeble since we wrote the bid to the DfE, designed the building with Portakabin and opened the doors to our first children in September 2019. I am now based at Keeble 2 days per week, leading the Senior Leadership Team and bringing my school leadership expertise to further develop Keeble.

A warm welcome from Mrs Layfield

I am Head of School at Keeble Gateway Academy. I was appointed as Assistant Head teacher before we opened our school in 2019 and taught our very first cohort of Reception children. I have experience in leading English in schools and am currently a DfE English Hubs Literacy Specialist, specialising in Phonics and early reading. I am also a Specialist Leader in Education for EYFS (Early Years) with North Star Teaching Alliance. I am based at Keeble all the time and have responsibility to the day to day running of our school.
