Salma's dedication to helping young people make sense of the world beyond the classroom and achieve their full potential inside it has been a driving force throughout her career. She is passionate about integrating pastoral support strategies into educational settings and has collaborated with various sectors to enhance support systems for young people.
Over the past 14 years, Salma has focused on developing pastoral and behaviour systems in schools within West Yorkshire. She has also been actively involved in training staff to adopt holistic approaches that promote academic achievement and overall well-being among young people. Particularly during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Salma has supported schools in understanding and addressing the mental health and well-being needs of students and facilitating their reintegration into school life.
Joining Dixons McMillan in 2023 as an Associate Senior Leader for Behaviour and Attendance, Salma hopes her wealth of experience and knowledge will support students achieve a first class education experience. Notably, she holds a degree in Criminology and Social Science from the University of Bedfordshire and has pursued a specialist degree in Muslim youth work at the University of Chester, supported by a scholarship. Furthermore, Salma has achieved the National Professional Qualification for Leading Behaviour and Culture (NPQLBC).
