WELCOME TO LONGVERNAL SCHOOL
I am the Headteacher of the school; I
have been in the teaching profession for 16 years having
experience of teaching across KS1 and KS2. I was appointed
Substantive Headteacher in December 2014, having been Acting
Headteacher since May 2014. Prior to joining Longvernal, I
was an Assistant Headteacher at Weston All Saints Primary
School in Bath.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher
of such a great school, where staff and parents work
together in partnership to ensure that we provide our
children with the best possible education, opportunities and
start to life.

We are a Forest School, which means
that every child has the opportunity to take part in forest
activities for two hours a week. I greatly believe that
Forest School activities are a great benefit to pupils both
academically and socially, helping them to grow into
confident, well - rounded individuals who aspire to
achieving their very best in life. I believe every child has
a gift or talent, whether it is academic, sporting, artistic
or vocational. In our role as educators we aim to equip
pupils with the skills and confidence to achieve their best
I am proud of the achievement the
school has made in improving standards since the school’s
last Ofsted inspection (October 2013) and feel confident
that our next Ofsted inspection will recognise the journey
the school has undertaken. Teachers and support staff work
tirelessly to offer a rich curriculum with a wealth of
opportunities in which pupils can engage.
I hope you find our website useful and
are able to get a snapshot of life at our school. Please
also book a visit through the school office; we would love
to share and celebrate our pupils’ achievements and the
wonderful opportunities which are on offer at our school.
