Meet The Teaching Staff

  • Mr David McLeod

    Headteacher

    Hello I am Mr McLeod and I am delighted to have been Headteacher at Broadwood since September 2016. I moved back home to the North East in July after 23 years away. Newcastle is such a fantastic city to work in and Broadwood Primary School is a very special place to be. The children, staff and parents are all wonderful and Broadwood has a unique community where the children achieve well and develop a very strong sense of belonging.
    You will find me on the yard most days before and after school. Do not hesitate to come over and say hello.
    If you are thinking about a visit to Broadwood to see if we would be the right school for your child then please arrange an appointment with me at the school office and I would welcome the opportunity to show you round.

  • Mrs Susan Brooks-Tyreman

    Deputy Headteacher


    Hi, I am Susan Brooks-Tyreman. I have been Deputy Head Teacher for the past two years which I thoroughly enjoy. It has been a real privilege working in this capacity over the course of the year and working alongside our experienced Head Teacher, David McLeod. To be part of this wonderful school, and the very special children who attend it is a real pleasure. There have been so many moments when I have had such a sense of pride in everything we have done.

    I have been the Co-ordinator of Early Years and I have taught in both Early Years and KS1. Early Years education is a passion of mine, and it is a pleasure and privilege to see how the young children in my care grow and progress in their learning.

    In my home life I love to travel with my family, find out about other cultures and learn other languages. I have visited many countries including countries in Europe, North America and Canada, as well as Oman in the middle east. It is because of this that I have had the roles in school of being lead for modern foreign languages (French at Broadwood) as well as being the lead for the children with English as an Additional Language.

    Working with a team of people we strive hard to ensure that those children new to our school (and indeed to our country) are made to feel welcome and at home and begin their learning journey in our school.

    I also have a love of singing. I may not be the best singer however being part of our school choir has been a great experience. Our choir has become firmly established and being part of the choir team has been a joy. Again…what a sense of pride when we all sang at the Sage or at our local Marie Curie Hospice.

    Developing strong community links is so important for us all at school and it was a rewarding experience to take some of our Year 6 children, as part of the Daffodil Project to our local Marie Curie Hospice.

    If you have any issues you wish to discuss with me, my ‘door’ is always open to you.
