Mrs Lees

I am currently enjoying the role teaching the Early Years and Key Stage One group, this is my passion! But I have lots of different members of staff who support our very creative and varied curriculum. I really enjoy being a teaching head, and maintaining that connection with the children. We have a lot of fun and the role is very rewarding.
