Welcome from the Executive Head Teacher
I am delighted to welcome you to Walkergate Community School website. As Executive Head teacher, I have the fantastic job of supporting the leaders within the school. Alison Young is responsible for the day to day running of the school and I offer support around strategic development and planning.  I also work as Chief Executive Officer of our academy trust, so a lot of my time is spent working across our five schools. All of our schools are currently based in the East End of Newcastle and we are working really hard to develop a curriculum, welfare support structure and learning and teaching approaches to improve the life chances for all of our young people.   As Walkergate is a teaching school, I also support this area of work. I am a national Leader of Education, which means that I work with Head teachers across a number of schools to support school improvement. A significant amount of training is delivered through the teaching school and this makes Walkergate school a really exciting place to work. The school really is at the forefront of teaching and learning.
Mrs Debi Bailey
Executive Head Teacher

My name is Ned and I am a cockapoo. I am hypoallergenic- that means that even people with allergies to dogs will be OK around me. I live with Debi Bailey who is CEO of NEAT and I am a puppy. I want to be a reading dog when I grow up! When I am trained, I am going to spend time in all of the NEAT schools encouraging reading. I can’t wait to meet everyone and to help make a difference to all of our wonderful families. If you don’t know what a reading dog is, you can get more information by visiting:

Bark and Read- the kennel club

Pets as Therapy- Read2Dogs

Once I am fully trained, I will keep you up to date with my Twitter page but for now, I will be spending a little bit of time in the schools so they can get to meet me and I can get to meet you (hopefully).
