My teaching career started at Feniton Primary in 1997 when I joined as a newly qualified teacher. For 12 years I enjoyed teaching KS2 and co-ordinating History & Geography, Art and Literacy. I was also fortunate to have been seconded to the University of Plymouth to work with trainee teachers and I have spent a year as a Literacy Consultant for Devon, but Feniton Primary kept drawing me back! As Head of School I had the privilege of supporting the development of teaching and learning across Feniton School and now as Executive Headteacher I can work more strategically across the Federation, supporting long term developments and ensuring the financial stability of our schools. It has been quite a journey and I am very proud to be a part of the Otter Valley Federation!
