This is my tenth year working at Lanesend Primary School. During this time I have undertaken a range of varied and rewarding roles, initially working within the Additional Educational Need and Family Support Teams and then in January 2016, I began a new role working within the Early Years Team and in 2018 was awarded HLTA status whilst continuing to work within the Early Years Team. I feel proud and privileged to be a part of ‘Team Lanesend’ and in keeping with the school ethos – I enjoy and ‘love learning’ with our children, families and the school team every minute of every day.
Prior to joining ‘Team Lanesend’ I completed my Degree and Postgraduate Studies in Manchester and worked across the UK and on the Isle of Wight as a Human Resource Manager – during this time I married and was delighted to have three children. At this point I chose to become a full time Mum and loved spending the ‘Early Years’ with my children – alongside being a full time Mum, my interest in child development blossomed and I began to volunteer in Primary Schools on the Island and became the Chairperson at a local Pre-School. I also had the opportunity to live in Australia for a year and volunteered in Primary School and Early Years settings in Adelaide. My desire to work in a school environment was confirmed - how lucky I feel to now be working in a most wonderful, inspiring, caring and nurturing school.
My children have all attended Lanesend Primary School and I am delighted that they have experienced all that Lanesend Primary School has to offer – memories which I am sure will last a lifetime.
Outside of school, I am ‘family and friends’ orientated. As a family we really enjoy making the most of the outdoors – walking in the forest, along the coast, beach days, picnics, barbeques and cycling.
