Welcome to Marsden Infant and Nursery School

Together with the whole staff team at Marsden Infant and Nursery School I would like to extend a very warm welcome to our website for existing families, new families and future families, as well as those who are just interested in our fabulous school.

It is the beginning of an exciting time personally for me as your new head teacher and I’m very much looking forward to my first year working alongside you all. It is an absolute privilege for me to be trusted with the care and education of the children, families and staff in our whole school community. I have been teaching for nearly 30 years and have worked in several schools across Kirklees and beyond as a deputy head and class teacher. My home life is a busy one; I am the mum of two daughters and the proudest grandma of two grandsons with a grand daughter on the the way.

I believe, above all else, that childhood is a precious time where every child should feel safe whilst the needs of the whole child are catered for in a magical and rigorous educational environment. I was once told that a young child’s teacher should be the next best thing to mum and god and that is what I have worked and aspired to do through my educational career and that is what I want from the staff working with me at Marsden. Everyone remembers their favourite teachers from school and how they have inspired them in later life. This is why every interaction we have with a child is important and should make them feel listened to and valued. Every child should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential and I have the highest of aspirations and expectations for all of the children and staff I work with.
