My name is Eilish Sleator and I am the Primary Deputy Principal & Head of Early Years here at Ajyal International School. I am originally from Ireland but I recently relocated to Abu Dhabi from London with my husband and our six year old son, Oscar. Throughout my extensive career to date in London, I have gained many skills that I believe will successfully add to this growing and developing school. Having lead and taught across all of the primary key stages, from Nursery to Year 5, I have been instrumental in creating successful, welcoming and inclusive institutions that pursue the objectives and implement the policies set out by the education authority. I am dynamic in maintaining the highest standards of Teaching and Learning and I consider myself to be at the forefront of contemporary educational practice.
I am someone who can easily engage with students, teachers, parents and community leaders alike in a manner that is open and inclusive. I am an exceptional leader with a proven track record of raising standards. Under my leadership and management, the Key Stages I have lead have always been judged as ‘Outstanding’. I am very keen to make a real difference to the lives of our children and I am committed to safeguarding their welfare and expect all my team to share this commitment. I have a strong desire to help young people progress with their academic, personal, and social needs coupled with a friendly yet professional approach. I look forward to a building successful relationships with all members of the Ajyal school community and experiencing your rich and diverse culture here in Abu Dhabi over the coming months.
