LLE Ann Dudgeon


Cross Education Phase
Caludon Castle School


I am Associate Head of Caludon Castle School and head of Castle Phoenix Teaching School Alliance. I have taught in Coventry schools since I qualified twenty nine years ago. I have been a senior leader at Caludon Castle for nine years, leading the improvement journey from ‘good’ (2004) to ‘outstanding’ (2008) and ‘outstanding’ again in 2011.

For a number of years I have been leading on leadership and management, performance management, building capacity and school-to-school support. I have delivered school-to-school support since 2006, and Caludon Castle became a National Support School in 2007. I have fulfilled this role both within Coventry and outside the city. From 2009-2010 I was the interim head of a Warwickshire school that had been placed in Special Measures. The school was taken out of Special Measures in 2010.

I hold the NPQH, am an accredited coach for NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML programmes and have delivered a range of leadership programmes for the teaching school alliance.
I see my LLE role in Leadership and Management as an exciting opportunity to work within the widest possible community of schools to strengthen whole school systems and develop, even further, the talented individuals within it.
