Christine Walker

Head of Primary

I graduated from Birmingham University with a B.Ed with a focus on English and Physical Education.  I began my teaching career as a secondary PE and English teacher in a highly successful secondary setting and became Head of PE and deputy head of sixth form. After I decided upon a change of focus and retrained as a primary teacher.   I have worked in a number of primary settings as a subject leader, year and phase leader and deputy headteacher.  On completion of the National Professional Qualification for Headteachers I became a Headteacher.  I have also been an executive Headteacher working across two local education authorities and worked in an advisory capacity for the local Primary Leadership team. 

I championed the development of phonics in a number of settings and worked with other schools to develop a more creative curriculum for all.  I was an NQT trainer, mentor and assessor.  I began my international teaching career in 2012 working as Head of Primary in a 3-18 setting and led the development of the primary setting from a 2 form to a successful 6 form entry primary school.  I recently worked in the UK as an education consultant, working in a variety of primary and secondary settings supporting schools to manage change, design and develop a more creative curriculum and to support and develop school leaders.  

The opportunity to work at NAS Dubai was a chance for me to work in an environment that embraced my philosophy of education and belief that we have a responsibility to ensure that future generations are equipped to live fulfilled and successful lives and to be real changemakers.   

When I’m not at school I am enjoying finding out about Dubai – the real Dubai.  I am a passionate reader and love listening to music.  I love having my family and friends out to visit and to share with them my new life.
