I have been Headteacher at Oaklands Nursery since 2005. I’ve always worked with Early Years children in a number of different roles: teacher, Early Years Advisor and now Headteacher. I’m currently involved as a National Leader of Education with supporting other schools and delivering training as part of the Teaching Schools Initiative.
I’ve been the teacher at Oaklands since 2006. I oversee the large team of staff at the nursery and recently have become a Specialist Leader of Education supporting other schools and settings and delivering training as part of the Teaching Schools Initiative.
I became a Governor when my children attended the nursery here and I live and work locally. I feel it is important to support the school, so that future generations can have the wonderful experience my children had here.
Having had a background in scientific and analytical roles I became a governor when my son attended the nursery. I saw first hand the important role Oaklands nursery had in my child’s early development and wanted to help safeguard this amazing resource for future generations.

I became a governor at Oaklands when my eldest attended in 2018. I’ve wanted to work in childcare for a while and feel this is a grest insight into the ins and outs of a nursery setting. I feel passionately about the parent voice being heard and would like to bridge the gap between the parents and the staff. I also feel it’s important to support the nursery so my younger child gets to enjoy the experience as much as my eldest.
