Emily Holmstoel

First Elected/ Appointed: 2019

Profession: SENCO

About: I am a SENCO and qualified teacher with an MA in Inclusive and special education. I have worked in both the state and independent sectors. I am currently freelance teaching and working with families who are applying for Education Health Care Plans alongside advising Petra’s Place charity for families with pre-school ASD children.

My experience has given me an excellent grounding in the complex and diverse needs of children with additional needs in mainstream education. I am passionate about supporting children and teaching them to advocate for themselves. I believe that a conventional school system is designed to exclude and stifle alternative thinkers and creative minds. I am inspired by schools like King Alfred that are leading the way for change and am excited to be involved with such an innovative education system.

I have two children both educated at St Christopher school in Letchworth.
