Sue Frost

Director – Education Research Alliance  Headteacher – Ashfield Junior School

Sue has been headteacher at Ashfield Junior School in Workington for 9 years following a move to Cumbria from Stoke-on-Trent in 2014. Sue has worked in education for 28 years having roles in secondary, special, primary and junior schools, as well as an advisory post for Stoke-on-Trent Local Authority. These posts have all involved working with a high number of disadvantaged pupils.

Sue is on the WELL Board representing the Education Research Alliance (formerly Cumbria Research School) as Ashfield Junior School has the role of leading on this work. The school has been involved in using research and evidence for their school improvement planning for the last few years and have a keen interest in developing this further by supporting other schools in the county. Ashfield’s role as research school meant it was responsible for disseminating information from the EEF to Cumbrian schools and are now continuing this work with additional partners. Sue believes it is great to be part of the WELL Board as this gives a direct link to support schools in West Cumbria, to secure the very best for our most disadvantaged pupils. She believes West Cumbria is a great place to work, and feels really positive about the impact this project, working alongside brilliant West Cumbrian school colleagues, can have on the outcomes for children.
