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 four years and it is a role which I thoroughly enjoy. It is a real privilege working in this capacity , alongside our 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.
    Early Years education is a passion of mine, and it is a pleasure and privilege to see how the youngest children in our school grow and progress in their learning. I have been the Early Years Lead for a number of years and it is also a role that I love. It is not only our youngest children however that it is a delight to see developing in their learning and our Power Teaching and Learning Approach is having a huge impact in their progress and outcomes.
    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, Oman and Kuwait in the middle east and South Africa. I also had the privilege of travelling to China, on behalf of Broadwood a number of years ago, making links with a school in Wuhan. It is hoped that these links can be rekindled in the near future. I do have a love of languages, have been the coordinator of Modern Foreign Languages in the past and am currently teaching Spanish to a Year 6 class.
    I am also 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. Diversity in our school is a real asset.
    I have a love of singing. I may not be the best singer however being part of our school drama club and choir is something I really enjoy. We had an amazing time with the choir over the Christmas period, singing in the local area and at a local home for the elderly. I am really looking forward to our current drama extravaganza which will be shown in July.
    Once again, it is a real privilege to be Deputy Head of this wonderful school. If you have any issues you wish to discuss with me, my door is always open to you.
