After working in law for ten years I realised that my true passion was teaching, as I had been privileged enough to work as a volunteer teaching English as a second language to young children. Following the successful completion of a Masters in Inclusive Education I then completed my PGCE training at Hull University. My first year of teaching was in a Year 1 class in Hull. In September 2015 I was thrilled to be invited to join the wonderful team at Westminster Primary School. I led the EYFS team when I first joined and have been lucky enough to work across all of the Key Stages. In 2018 I was appointed Deputy Head. This year I will be working in years 2 and 5 along with tutoring children in Key Stage 2. I will also be working with the Trust to develop the curriculum within our school. Please do not hesitate to talk to me on the playground or let me know if you need to make an appointment.
