Meet the Team!

Aleishia Lewis is a Deputy Headteacher at a Church of England primary school in Southend with responsibility for Curriculum, English and Assessment. For the past four years, she has also worked as an SLE for the South Essex Teaching School Alliance supporting schools with teaching and learning running Middle Leadership programmes.

During the 2018/19 academic year she took part in the Church Leadership programme. The experience was a rewarding one and led her to research the issues surrounding the lack of BAME school leaders in the UK.

She has just finished leading an Ethnic Leadership programme for eleven teachers from across Essex with DFE Equality and Diversity funding and last term worked with Lorraine facilitating working groups in the region focusing on anti-racism and the curriculum.
