Welcome Michelle Blanchard, Beckfoot Allerton Headteacher

As a Trust, we are delighted to welcome Michelle Blanchard as Headteacher of Beckfoot Allerton. 

Michelle is an incredibly experienced leader who has dedicated much of her career to the Bradford District.  Many of our community will know Michelle as the former Principal of Dixons Music Primary who led the school to its Outstanding Ofsted judgement in 2016.    Under Michelle’s leadership in 2019, pupils achieved exceptional Key Stage 1 and 2 outcomes. 

Michelle is a highly respected leader and was recently appointed as a behaviour advisor for the Department of Education.  She is a leader with high expectations and a belief that only the best will do.  She inspires the children she teaches, the staff she leads and the communities that she serves. 

We are delighted that Michelle has become part of our Beckfoot Trust Family.
