Meet the Staff
Governor Committees: Resources; School improvement
I joined the school in September 2015. I have twin daughters, who keep me very busy and I love playing sport. My favourites are football, boxing and running, which all keep me reasonably fit! I’m also a big Chelsea FC fan so will always be happy on a Monday if they have won at the weekend. Away from sport, I enjoy reading, films and cooking. I think it’s really important that children are active learners and take responsibility for their learning, so I’m always keen to see this as I’m walking around school. I’m always popping in and out of classrooms as I find it really rewarding to see all the exciting things that are going on in our school.
Deputy Headteacher, SENCO and RE Leader, Year 4 teacher
Hello! I am the Deputy Head at school and I love teaching at Riccall. Our children are creative and exciting and make coming to school each day a real adventure... I am currently the Year 4 teacher so if you are in school come and see 'THE SUCCESSFUL SQUID SQUAD!' we love sharing our learning journey with others. I am SENCo for the school which means I look at how we are meeting the needs of all our learners and making sure that those who need it get support at the right times. Our children know that their contributions are valued and help shape what we offer them. I work in partnership with Parents so they are involved in what is going on and are part of how we support our children. I have recently moved into the village and am enjoying discovering walks with our dog Scruff. I have 2 children at Barlby High (Jake and Belle) and they both help out at school when they can. We have 2 cats at home - Socks and Sandals, we also had 2 rabbits Cookie and Cream. We like having pairs of animals! I love to read and Terry Pratchett is my favourite author, his discworld novels capture my imagination and make me laugh out loud. I can recommend Maurice and his educated rodents as this is a different twist on the Pied Piper of Hamlyn. I am a bit of a film buff and love going to the cinema (maybe for the huge bag of pick and mix!). I look forward to seeing you...

I am currently enjoying being back in the classroom part-time with Year 4. I have worked with Mrs Kinnaird in the past and am looking forward to working alongside her again. I love stories and reading to children is one of my greatest pleasures; nothing is as satisfying as reaching the end of a good book and hearing the applause of children who have become totally immersed in the story and the lives of the characters over a few weeks. My favourite author is Michael Morpurgo, closely followed by Elen Caldecott. I also love maths and PSHE. In the 2017/18 school year I am excited at the prospect of the new 'Charity Champions' club and seeing the playleaders improve our playtimes.
