I joined St Barnabas in September 2013 having previously been a head for five years in a small village school in South Northamptonshire. I am proud to be head of such a happy and inclusive church school where all staff go the extra mile to support and nurture the children in their care. Since Easter 2018 I have become executive headteacher of Ringstead Primary School- dividing my time between the two schools. St. Barnabas has two very experienced leaders sharing the head of school role in my absence. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my three grown up children and my husband who always claims he doesn’t see me between Monday morning and Friday evening!! My first grandchild was born in 2014 and the second three years later in February 2017 so I am a very proud 'Long Tall Nanny' to Finlay and Meredith. I am an avid reader and enjoy long walks at the weekend. I am active in my local church although since taking on the executive headship at Ringstead I have stood down as a churchwarden. My perfect weekend is taking long walks along the beaches of the North Norfolk coast with our dog Blue, stopping for refreshments in the wonderful eateries which can be found there. During the school holidays I like to indulge in cooking and baking- dipping into some of my extensive collection of cookery books- as well as spending time with my grandchildren and their very boisterous puppy Buster.
I joined St Barnabas in March 2016 and feel very happy here as it is a lovely school and all the staff have made me feel very welcome. Outside of work I have two children who keep me busy as well as my lovely dog Bella and my cat Casper. I love to spend time with my family and friends and enjoy quality time with my partner and children doing lots of different activities.
I joined St Barnabas in September 2015. As well as teaching the Owl class, I am also the History and Geography lead and am currently working on the Geography Quality Mark.
