The HeartSpace

"The HeartSpace is a quality provision. There is a warm, secure and welcoming environment which promotes excellent response from students. They talked happily about what they were learning, were proud of what they had done, and clearly had excellent professional relationships with all adults. There was evidence of good work and progress in books and, in a science lesson for example, evidence of teaching which had promoted real ‘stickability’ in knowledge. Leaders could clearly explain the purpose of the resource and how the structures supported the different groups of learners." - SIP Report 2022

Welcome to the HeartSpace from Mr Crook & Mrs Crook

Mrs Crook: I am privileged to be Assistant Principal here at Penistone Grammar School. My portfolio is diverse, but my main responsibility is strategic oversight of the HeartSpace. I honestly feel I have the best job in the world and I am honoured to work with such an amazing team and incredible students everyday.

The Principal and I work very closely together to ensure our students receive the best possible offer. This includes teaching on a daily basis and being actively involved in all of the Heart Space’s daily activities (especially dressing up!).

Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to have worked and led across three different authorities, in both primary and secondary settings. My roles have included: Teacher of ages 2-16; Head of Key Stage; LA Moderator; Primary PE Specialist; Designated Safeguarding Lead; Deputy Headteacher; and SENCO. I am also proud to be a licensed adolescent THRIVE practitioner.

Mr Crook: I am really proud of the HeartSpace here at PGS. The provision is changing lives and we are on a very special journey towards becoming a centre of excellence.
