I have been teaching here at Rode Heath for 13 years now and the time has simply flown! Outside of school I enjoy walking, travelling and music, and have been known to dabble in a bit of baking (although my standards are a way off The Great British Bake Off!). Having recently moved to the countryside, I have also become the owner of the world's largest, and possibly hairiest dog, Claude.

I have been teaching at Rode Heath for twelve years now and I can’t believe how fast it has gone! I am very excited to be moving from Reception to Year One and spending another year with your wonderful little people.

As the school Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo), I am also responsible for collaborating with the teachers, teaching assistants and parents to support children with additional needs. It is a really special role as I have the privilege of working with children in all year groups to support them on their learning journey.

Outside of school my two young children keep me very busy. We love exploring outside, painting and dancing around the living room!

I have been at Rode Heath for 7 years, supporting classes in both infants and juniors and have thoroughly enjoyed working with all the children. Part of my role has been sound and video technician in the sharing assemblies!!! :]]
In my spare time I am a team manager for a local swimming club and spend many weekends supporting my son in his swimming endeavours, which usually means a very early start!

Your learning journey at home...

We hope you are all safe and well during this difficult time.  We are thinking about you and missing you all so much!
