Dear Parents and Carers,
I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little bit more about myself.
I am originally from Halifax, West Yorkshire. I moved south in August 2013 as I wanted to spread my wings and fly from the green hills of Yorkshire, and I chose Surrey as my new destination.
Since my primary school days, I have always wanted to be a teacher. I loved my years at primary school and admired all my teachers for their hard work and love for the children in their care.
I worked hard at senior school and went on to study at Trinity and All Saints College, Leeds, for four years, achieving a BA in Primary Education with a specialism in Science. I enjoyed every aspect of the degree course, as I was working for a purpose, which was to achieve my end goal of becoming a primary teacher.
In 2013, I made the decision to move south, and I genuinely believe someone was looking out for me! I arrived at St Anne's to a community filled with such special people. The children are so conscientious in every way possible; the staff are unbelievable, and work so hard to deliver the best education to your children. Also, the parents and wider community couldn't be more welcoming.
The last few years have been a whirlwind; but with a great staff team and fantastic children we are able to achieve a lot.
Our school mission statement is from St John Bosco, a priest committed to making children's lives better: 'It is not enough to love children they must know that they are loved.' This is really what we are all about. The children can articulate how they know they are loved and the staff too. Care and attention is given to every pupil but not just academically but emotional and socially as well. No child can achieve if they have that self-doubt, low self-confidence and / or carrying worries we grown ups can help with.
I thank all those who are currently part of our community for their continued support and look forward to meeting anyone new.
My door will always be open, and I will do my very best with Mrs Murphy and the amazing team, for you all and your children.
