The Head, Ex-officio


I started my teaching career in September 1979 in a small village primary school, much like this school, and have taught all year groups from Reception to Year 6.  I have been fortunate and delighted to have been Headteacher at St John the Baptist Primary School since September 2015. I am totally committed to providing the children in our school with the best education and opportunities that I can. They are an absolute delight who never cease to impress me with their determination, hard work and positive attitude to school.  As a member of the Governing Board, it is my role to ensure that we lead Pebmarsh School forward so that all of our pupils can achieve their own dreams and goals.  I am also very proud to work with such a committed and hard-working staff and have relished the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of developing the good school it is today.

I became a Parent Governor in the latter part of 2018 and have two children currently at this school.  I am excited and proud to be part of the team to support and guide St John the Baptist over the coming years to continue to provide a challenging yet nurturing environment for all its pupils.  I am keen to encourage further close links with the community and the pupils’ families, and help to ensure the children have all they need to make the best of themselves.
