The programme will be run by Meherun Hamid, Headteacher of Apex Primary (Islamic School in Ilford). She has been a headteacher at Apex for over 12 years and understands the challenges of managing an Islamic school – from limited budgets, staffing, SEND, DSL, premises, covering classes and the list goes on.
Meherun’s interest in self-development started during the COVID lockdown and over the last few years she has completed a number of courses on coaching, self-development, mental health and wellbeing. She has noticed an increase in mental health issues in both children and staff and has started incorporating coaching and wellbeing programmes at Apex. She now wants to offer programmes to support school leaders and teachers in other schools.
