Sam Leadbeater
Staff Governor

I was born in Sheffield, grew up in the midlands and came to the South Coast to attend university at Portsmouth University, achieving a BSc Psychology Degree. I trained at Chichester University for my Primary PGCE and have been at Redwood Park ever since!

I have been a class teacher at Redwood for three and a half years and completed my NQT year at the school back in 2015. I have been at the school throughout the academisation process and have developed my practice throughout the process.

I’m an avid music lover and enjoy attending live music concerts and  adding to my record collection; occasionally putting on gigs myself and DJing on vinyl.

I have a passion for teaching in Special Needs schools, particularly working with children on the autistic spectrum, and I’m currently working towards my National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership.
