Katy Baldwin

Assistant Head *maternity leave

A headteacher once told her that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s eyes light up when they understand a new concept and this is a sentiment she wholeheartedly endorses. Katy loves to work with younger children because of their enthusiasm for learning and is always looking for new ideas and ways to develop their learning in fun, creative and exciting ways.
