Mrs Jo Ford

Deputy Headteacher

I feel very privileged to be Deputy Headteacher and working at Bridgemary School at this very exciting time. I hold a BA (Hons) QTS in Physical Education with Coaching Science/Psychology and have enjoyed several senior roles at Bridgemary School over the past 14 years.

Over that time I have been fortunate enough to gain the National Professional Qualification for Headteachers (NPQH) along with other National College qualifications, and delivered at several National Conferences on behalf of the Youth Sport Trust, to which I was seconded.

Prior to working in Bridgemary I worked as a Head of Department in a Southampton School, after gaining my degree at Chichester University.

Currently my main areas of responsibilities are to oversee the curriculum design, staffing needs analysis and producing the timetable, as well as being lead for behaviour and attendance. I am also the designated safeguard lead and designated teacher for looked after students.
