Empowering you, our parents & carers
Heather here, your friendly PFSA!
Here is a bit about me:
I’m really happy to be working at Shepton Infants and Nursery, having heard many great things about the school and its pupils.
I have taught in mainstream and SEN schools for the past 20 years, including ones in Wiltshire and Somerset, volunteered at local schools and been a parent governor. I also set up my own childminding business whilst my own children were younger. During my career, I have worked with children between the ages of 2 and 16.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and going on long walks with our dog. I try to be as creative as possible and sew when I have some spare time!
My usual days of work are Tuesdays and Thursdays and I’m always happy to meet for a chat and a cuppa!
