THE REDDINGS
PRIMARY & NURSERY SCHOOL

Our Teaching Staff

  • Head Teacher, Lead Designated person for Safeguarding, Science Subject Specialist

    I joined The Reddings in September 2003 as Deputy Head and was promoted to Head Teacher in January 2006.

    I feel incredibly privileged to be The Reddings’ Head Teacher and I strive to ensure the children get the very best learning and enrichment opportunities during their time at The Reddings.  I believe it is important to maintain my teaching skills and I have a weekly teaching commitment.

    When not being a Head Teacher; I enjoy playing netball, spending time with my family and socialising with my friends.

  • Assistant Head, SEND, Attendance and Pastoral Care - I joined The Reddings in September 2015 as the Inclusion Co-ordinator. I enjoy working with colleagues, pupils and their families to ensure all children are able to be successful and to enjoy school life. I am a member of the Senior Leadership team of the school. I work closely with our Pastoral Lead to ensure pupils and families are well supported. My role also involves working with many outside agencies to access additional provision.

    I am a mum of two small children who keep me very busy when I am not at school! In my spare time I enjoy going on day trips with my family, reading and watching movies.

  • Assistant Head (Curriculum and Assessment) - I was very lucky to have my first experience of teaching, here at The Reddings, as a first year student teacher and consider myself extremely privileged to be back now as Year 2 class teacher and leader of Key Stage One. I have now been a teacher for over ten years and have experience of teaching in both Key Stage 1 and 2 but specialise in working with younger learners, which is a joy as they are still at the beginning of their journey into education and making learning exciting and creative is my passion. Over the years, I have taught at different schools within the local area and have led various subject areas. I love to make learning fun and interactive using drama and working outside the classroom when possible.
    At home, I am Mum to 2 boys and enjoy spending my spare time having fun and keeping active with them.

  • I currently have the privilege of teaching our youngest learners in the Nursery. I have now been working at The Reddings for over 6 years and this year will be saying goodbye to

    some of the first students that

    I taught as they leave us in

    Year 6.

    Aside from being the Nursery teacher, I am the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 leader, supporting learners from their start in school, up to Year 2.

    I am also the Assistant Head, supporting the Headship team as part of the senior leadership of the school.

    I love History and Geography and am passionate that children have a sense of their place in the wider world and how we are all connected to each other and to the past.

    Outside the school I enjoy swimming and Pilates. My family are obsessed with bike riding but as yet I am a reluctant participant. Who knows, I may get to enjoy it one day!

  • I have worked at The Reddings since September 2013 as a KS2 teacher. I moved to Hemel Hempstead from Portsmouth and have not looked back since!

    I graduated from the University of Exeter with a degree in English Literature in 2010. I then worked in a special needs school as a Learning Support Assistant before completing a PGCE in Primary Education.

    I have a passion for learning and making a difference in the lives of children. Outside of work, my passions include playing the guitar and following my beloved Portsmouth Football Club.

  • I have always known I wanted to be a teacher from making worksheets for my younger siblings to giving them ‘break times’ in the garden. During my time as a teacher I have been lucky enough to work in KS1 and KS2 which has given me great experience of teaching and learning across the curriculum.

    In my spare time I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also take part in a range of activities such as swimming, martial arts and going to the gym. I am also a keen gardener and enjoy eating what I grow.

  • I started working at the Reddings in 2015 and I am currently working across the school mainly teaching PE, Music, Art and computers. I have been running many music clubs in the school including Glee Club, Ukulele Club and Keyboard Club. My hobbies are watching cartoons with my children, reading comics and making fun educational videos and books for young children.

  • I have been a primary school teacher in Hertfordshire for 27 years, and I joined The Reddings in 2010. I work part time across the school, but largely in KS2, and it is lovely to be able to work with so many of the children at The Reddings. I particularly enjoy teaching teaching English, as well as History, Art and DT.

    Outside of work, I enjoy socialising, cooking, camping, music and reading. I belong to a book group and I am a Governor at a school local to my home.

  • I joined The Reddings in September 2015 and felt welcomed immediately.  I am current the Year 4 teacher as well as the subject specialist for maths and computing.  Whilst my main curriculum areas of interest are primarily in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), I also enjoy the OAA (Outdoor Adventurous Activities) activities in PE and am an avid believer in learning outside the classroom.

    Away from school I enjoy time with my children, particularly when they want to build LEGO, am an active scout leader and an avid tinkerer with gadgets.

  • I have been teaching at The Reddings since September 2014 and thoroughly enjoy working here. I started off by teaching in year 1 and now I am currently working part time teaching in a few classes.

    I have been teaching for many years and have experience in both keystage 1 and keystage 2. I have always wanted to work with children as it feels greats to see them learn and achieve and of course no two day is the same!

    In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. One of my hobbies is cooking and trying lots of different cuisines. I also enjoy travelling and visiting new places. More recently I have started running and cycling.

  • I started working at The Reddings in September 2016 as a KS2 teacher and am currently teaching in Year 3. I graduated from the University of East London in 2012 with a degree in BSC Sport and Exercise science. I currently use this in school to oversee all of the sport that goes on at school. I have worked within schools for the past 6 years as well as working in the USA running sports camps in deprived areas of Michigan. Outside of school I enjoy going to the gym, listening to country music and supporting Arsenal.

  • I started working at The Reddings in October 2017 as the Year 1 Class Teacher. I was new to Hemel Hempstead as I had just moved from Cape Town, South Africa. From the very first day, the team at The Reddings made me feel most welcome. My teaching experience is predominantly SEN, however I am so glad to be part of an inclusive environment here. I am passionate about teaching young minds and developing them for a better future. Every day is a new opportunity to learn and grow. When I have the chance, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, listening to music and painting and drawing.

  • I started working at The Reddings in September 2017 as the Teacher in EYFS2.  I have always worked in Early Years, either Nursery or Reception.  In Early years we are at the foundation of the school and it is very rewarding to see how the children develop and grow.

    All the staff at The Reddings are friendly and make you feel welcome.  It is a fabulous school to work in.

    At home I like to spend time with my family and socialising with my friends.
