Meet Our Governors

Mr Waldron - Head TeacherMr Waldron - Head Teacher

I have been the head teacher at our school since September 2006. I have taught in six schools since my career began in 1988 and always taught pupils between 3-7 years of age. Nothing can beat the reward as a teacher from seeing children have those light bulb moments in their development, the joy of learning, being inspired and having fun.
