I am the Deputy Head Teacher of Cotherstone Primary School where I have taught since 2010 when I began as a part-time Year 3 and 4 teacher.
I currently teach years 5 and 6 and have various other roles within the school including Special educational needs and disabilities coordinator, subject lead for literacy, science, PE and history.
I am also deputy safeguarding lead and GDPR officer. As we are small school, we as a staff have to wear many ‘hats’ and it is essential that we all work together for the benefit of our children while recognising a sensible work/life balance is being maintained by all.
I enjoy listening to and playing music, reading and watching films. Most weekends I can be found covered in mud either in walking boots or on my mountain bike.
