Gemma Watson

Deputy Head of Primary

[email protected]

‘I am proud to be Deputy Head of Primary here at GEMS Founders School. I come from Sunderland, England and have called Dubai my home since 2012.

Before moving to the UAE, I was a teacher and senior leader in a children’s centre and primary school in North East England.  Since arriving in the UAE I have taught and led in two other schools in the GEMS family. Here at GFS I have worked across EYFS through to Key Stage 5, supporting and strategically developing teaching and learning to ensure all learners can thrive.

I hold a BA (Hons) in Early Primary Education, MA in Educational Leadership, NPQSL and I am PENTA International Accredited Inspector for British Schools Overseas.

Early Years is my passion and I am committed to ensuring that all children and families entering GFS Early Years are given the best start. I endeavor to create enabling, nurturing learning environments where positive relationships and happy children can ‘grow, flourish and succeed’.
