Bethany Hall began working with young people in 2008, supporting a number of children across the city of Leeds. Bethany has experience in neighbouring schools, she started working in Early Years specialising in Child Protection and students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). In 2016 Bethany began working in secondary education and secured the position of pastoral lead working with Post 16. ​

In 2018 Bethany came to Leeds West Academy as a Behaviour and Attendance leader in KS4. Following on from this Bethany was placed in the role of Acting Associate Assistant Principal for Behaviour and Attitudes. As an ex-pupil, Bethany has close links to the local community and has a passion to improve aspirations of the children in this area to ensure that all students are able to have the best options and choices for the future. Bethany is also Leeds West Academy’s designated Safeguarding Lead, she has years of experience and knowledge working to safeguard young people and ensuring all students are safe and well.

She strongly believes that reward, praise and recognition is important in making students take responsibility for their choices and self-regulate their behaviour to achieve positive outcomes.  ​
