My first association with Wheatcroft School was when my eldest son started Nursery in 1999, I then began teaching here in September 2003. I have taught in KS1 and KS2, but the majority of my time has been involved with the upper end of the school in Year 5 and 6. I have also spent time on the PTFA and have supported many events as a teacher and parent. All three of my sons came through Wheatcroft, the youngest leaving in 2012. They had a superb start to their education and have very fond memories of this school.
I have a love of all things outdoors and have helped to develop the outdoor learning environment and bring Forest School to Wheatcroft. I have organised residential trips throughout the school and currently lead the Year 6 residential to Manor Adventure. As the Assistant Head I am also involved in training and mentoring other teachers, monitoring interventions and support of children with SEND and being part of the school senior leadership team. Other roles within the school are Forest School Leader, Sustainability Co-ordinator, Learning Outside the Classroom Co-ordinator and Educational Visits Co-ordinator.
