Staff

The school community is made up of our children, their families, and our ‘grown-ups in school’.

Our school is led by the Governing Body who work closely with the school’s Senior Leadership Team. The SLT is made up of Miss Claire Bright (Headteacher), Miss Jane Icely (Deputy Headteacher), Miss Kerrie Boardman (Assistant Headteacher), Miss Janet Walton (Inclusion Lead Teacher and SEND Co-ordinator), and Ms Cat Gillies (School Business Manager).

We have a fantastic group of adults who contribute to the running of the school, and they aren’t all staff – we also have visiting external professionals such as counsellors and Speech and Language Therapists, pupils and students on work placement, and some wonderful volunteers!

Our staff team is made up of our Teachers, Education Support Staff (Teaching Assistants, Learning Mentors, Attendance and Family Support Officer, Sports Leader), Operational Support Staff (Business Manager and Business Support Officers, Site Supervisor and Cleaners, Lunchtime Supervisor and Lunchtime Welfare Staff, Lunchtime Playworkers) and our contract staff (LCC’s Catering Team).
