Job Title:
Assistant Headteacher
Chailey Heritage Foundation

I’m Paula Marten, Assistant Headteacher at Chailey Heritage Foundation, a school for children and young people with complex neurodisabilities. Having worked in post-16 Special Education for 28 years, I have learnt a huge amount about the needs of young people and their families – and I am still learning! At Chailey, I lead on the transition to adult services, and this is an aspect of the school’s provision that I feel incredibly strongly about. The support and health care needs of these Young People don’t necessarily change when they reach the age of 18 – but the funding and the services available to them do. Support, information, and guidance for the individual and for the people who care for them throughout this incredibly challenging period is essential. I have worked to raise the profile of transition to adult services through speaking at All Party Parliamentary Groups, contributing written evidence to the latest Government report on Transition to Adulthood, and working with parent/carer forums in the South East. My work with the RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) team at Chailey is another passion. We deliver RSE training for teachers, carers and parents across the UK via the Sex Factor course, a programme written and developed at Chailey. At the core of this training is the belief in the right of children and young people to be enabled to make choices, enjoy meaningful connections with others and keep themselves safe – to the best of their ability, no matter how severe their disabilities. I am privileged to work in a progressive school with amazing people, and I want to share my insight and experience with others to raise awareness and keep on learning!
