Our School


Two heads are better than one!

Tuel Lane Infant School has two Headteachers.

Miss Shaw and Mrs Booth work together across the week to lead the school. The arrangement is called a Co-Headship.

We have worked closely together for several years. We share a strong commitment, vison and ambition for the school and our families, and we have a strong working relationship built on mutual respect and trust.

We believe our different experiences and skills bring additional strength to the role.

Miss Shaw

I have worked at Tuel Lane for a mind-boggling 20 years firstly as a teacher and then, for the last 16 years as Headteacher.

I worked away from Tuel Lane during 2019-2020 as President of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT).

I work in school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Mrs Booth

I have worked at Tuel Lane for 11 years. I started as a newly qualified teacher here in 2010 before taking on roles as Early Years Leader and Assistant Headteacher within school. I’ve taught in almost all our classes and year groups over the years!

My expertise lies in Early Years Education, and I work across Calderdale as a Specialist Leader of Education for Early Years, and a Local Authority Moderator.

I teach on Mondays and Tuesdays, and I’m the Headteacher on Thursdays and Fridays.

You can contact both headteachers on our shared email address head@tuellane.calderdale.sch.uk

Very best wishes
