DANIELLE PETAR

Hi, my name is Danielle Petar and I am thrilled to be going into my ​fifth year at Gesher as Assistant Headteacher of Inclusion and also as the SENDCO. ​Having initially gained a​n honours degree in Psychology, ​I then studied my PGCE ​at the Institute of Education, where I completed a specialism in SEN. I have now been in education for ​18 years, as a class teacher initially, and then for the past 14 years as an Inclusion Lead/SENDCO with experience in various mainstream settings prior to joining the amazing Gesher community. Over the years I have had the privilege of supporting a large number of families on their journey in gaining an EHCP and then beyond. I am passionate about working collaboratively and creatively with all involved to secure the best support and provision to enable our children and young people to flourish. I love that at Gesher I have many opportunities to be with the students in class and be involved in teaching.
