Roz Cordner

Primary Adviser


Roz joined the School Effectiveness team as Primary Adviser in 2015 having served as a headteacher in one of the primary schools in the Diocese for just over ten years.  During this period Roz worked as a Local Leader of Education in Merton and Lewisham.  Prior to that she taught in church and community schools in  Durham for four years.   Roz came to teaching late in life having worked as a Civil Servant for the Department of Employment in Poplar and Stepney followed by a role working for a Quaker Charity in Bromley-by-Bow. 

In her current post, as part of the school effectiveness team,  Roz leads training for schools and governors,  supports schools in their self-evaluation  and works closely with local authorities on school reviews.  As with all members of the team,  Roz promotes the Christian distinctiveness of our schools.  All of our advisers support the recruitment of, and induction  for headteachers and deputy heads.  Within her role, she is responsible for overseeing the work  of the Diocesan School Improvement Partners and alongside colleagues ensures that schools are up to date with national initiatives.
