Kirstie Clark


Head of Inclusion

I started my journey at CIS in 2021 as the Deputy Headteacher of Early Years and from that point had a keen interest in supporting children with special educational needs. This interest stems from two of my children having barriers to their learning, because of this I am truly passionate about inclusive education and creating a welcoming environment where children are given equitable opportunities in the classroom.

Prior to this role I was based in the UK and have over 13 years of teaching and leadership experience, holding different leadership positions from Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, and Head of School. In these roles, I have gained invaluable experience in special educational needs and how to support children in the classroom.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) in journalism, have gained my National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership ( NPQSL ), graduated with a PGCE, and have completed a diploma in SEND. I am now currently studying to gain the International Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordination award( iSENDCO) and Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET).
