Additional Roles

I have worked at Haseltine since 2013 and have been a Deputy Head Teacher since September 2015.

I love working at Haseltine because it has an amazing culture of learning. The children are enthusiastic, curious and motivated. The teachers are inspiring and full of new ideas to stimulate learning and the parents are so willing to partner with us with ways to support their children.

I am very lucky as EYFS leader, as I can spend time with all of the children in Reception and Nursery. As Deputy Head and Computing leader I also have the opportunity to get to know the children across the rest of the school when I am teaching Computing and 3D printing, among other subjects.

I am very proud to work at Haseltine and hope to stay here for many years to come!
