Alicia has worked in education for over 15 years! She originally was employed by Parklands Girls High School which transitioned to a coeducational school and then evolved into the White Rose Academies Trust.
In her early years of employment, Alicia supported the inclusion team as a teaching assistant specialising in Performing Arts. Alicia took a keen interest into pastoral responsibilities and studied a degree in 'Supporting Young People Families and Children' and then moved onto become a Year Manager. Over time Alicia took on additional responsibilities such as transition and attendance.
In the year 2017/2018 Alicia was employed as an Attendance Leader and transformed attendance from 93.9% to 94.5% at Leeds East Academy.
Alicia is currently deployed at Leeds City Academy as a driving force to our continual improvement of student attendance.
