Families Support Manager & Designated Safeguarding Lead/SPOC at Temple Hill, West Hill & Oakfield
Head of School at Temple Hill
Positive, Passionate and Hardworking is how I would describe myself. I come from a large family with an English/Caribbean background. I love eating, exercise and seeing/doing new things in the world. I have worked with children in a variety of different settings before I became a teacher as well as doing a wide range of jobs including labouring, factory work, restaurants and cleaning. My main passion in life (other than Tottenham Hotspur!) is to improve the life chances of the children I work with. I am also a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
I have been teaching for many years and have enjoyed teaching in the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Prior to joining Temple Hill in 2005 I was an Advanced Skills Teacher and was fortunate enough to support many schools across Kent with improving teaching and learning. My current role involves me working across both Oakfield and Temple Hill Primary Schools and I feel privileged to be able to work with such fantastic children, staff and parents at both schools. Outside of school, you will find me being kept very busy entertaining my two children. I am also a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
My name is Mrs Howe and I joined Temple Hill in 2013 as Literacy Leader. Literacy is my passion, and I love being able to share my enthusiasm for the subject with the children here. I have been lucky enough to work at both Oakfield and Temple Hill and cannot wait to see what the future holds for our fantastic federation! When not at school you will most likely find me spending time with friends and family or curled up reading a good book. I am also a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
I consider myself to be a positive and out going person, who has taught across all year groups, since arriving in London, from sunny South Africa in 2005. I have been married for 10 years to my soulmate and have two beautiful children who are 4 and 7 years old. I enjoy keeping both my mind and body healthy by exercising during the week and when I find spare time to sit down and read, books which help me reflect on my parenting and teaching, are of great interest to me. I am also a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
Assistant Headteacher - Inclusion & SEN Co-Ordinator
I would describe myself as Passionate, pro-active and committed. I started teaching in 2007 and worked across a range of schools: big, small, mainstream, specialist and independent. I also have experience working with children who have profound learning and physical disabilities which has given me a greater understanding of a range of children’s needs. Everywhere I’ve worked it was clear to me that my passion lies in helping children with special educational needs get what they need to reach their full potential. I come from a big family so I love getting involved in the hustle and bustle of family and school life. I strive for positive outcomes in everything I do, and at a time where the education system is in a period of change, I aim to inform, support, and motivate children, parents and teachers which I feel confident, eager and equipped to do. I am also a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
