I am the Co-Head Teacher, also responsible for Pastoral Care, which includes the management of Heath House. I work with the Heath House team to ensure an outstanding boarding experience is provided for all children and young people which meets all the statutory requirements.
My name is Tom (Lead Residential Support Worker)
I am the senior Residential Support Worker in Heath House and have now worked at Heathlands for nineteen years. My role is to oversee the day to day running of Heath House, ensure children and young people feel safe and happy and are provided with a 24 hour learning experience. I enjoy going on Heath House trips and especially enjoy sharing my love of cooking with the residents.
My name is Lena (Residential Support Worker)
I have worked in Heath House for two years as a Residential Support Worker. When I was growing up I attended Heathlands School as a day pupil however I experienced boarding in Derby College for three years.
I can empathise with how Heath House pupils may feel in boarding being away from their families. I like to make sure all children and young people are happy, relaxed and enjoy themselves with plenty of activities. I love animals so help look after the Heath House rabbits and enjoy leading art and craft activities.
My name is Keren (Residential Support Worker)
I began working as a residential support worker in January 2019. I come from an activity residential centre which inspires outdoor learning. I am truly passionate about encouraging children and young people to enjoy the outdoors and to gain new skills. I love organising activities for all the individual needs of Heath House residents. I care about their wellbeing and strive to help children and young people become independent, happy and confident young adults.
