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 in life.

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.
