Management experience: Margaret Warner was headteacher/principal of a Church of England primary (3-11 years) school for ten years in London's developing Docklands area. (1979-1989) The school had a nursery class, and she set up a pre-school playgroup which parents could attend with their children as young as 18 months. Land adjoining the school was bought and a nature park designed and developed which was opened by the naturalist David Bellamy. The school is in an area surrounded by water - the disused docks and the River Thames – so an attractive detached brick building, housing a learners’ swimming pool was also built. Before leaving, she began to introduce the National Curriculum to the school. Three of her teachers were promoted to headships whilst she was at the school. Margaret Warner returned to college in 1990 to study for an MA in Education. She then became head of departments in a girls' high school and in a large comprehensive school. Following that she set up the religious education department in a new secondary special school. From 1994 to 2005 she inspected schools across England, leading primary teams for eight of those years. This involved planning inspections, managing teams and writing up inspection reports.
