Collaborating to achieve the best possible outcomes right from the start

Helen Adams is a National Leader of Education for the Cornwall Early Years Teaching School.

I have been fortunate to have worked in a whole variety of schools since I began teaching in 1994. I have worked in both small and large primary schools in and out of Cornwall as well as a military school in Germany. I have led a dedicated speech and language unit and during my career I have been on the leadership team of 4 different schools and have been a SENCo in 2 different schools. I was fortunate to have had the experience of undertaking 3 acting headships in 3 different schools prior to taking up the headship at Truro Nursery School where I am currently in post. I am passionate about and committed to early education and support for all children and alongside Emma Short I am delighted to be leading the Cornwall Early Years Teaching School.
