|Ms M Gibbs|
I have been a Catholic Head Teacher for 8 years now and this is my second year here at St Modwen’s. I have absolutely loved my move to Burton, as a big fan of both marmite and swans! I am proud to be a member of our vibrant parish of Saints Mary and Modwen and am very grateful to Father Stephen who helped me to settle in to my new life here. I love working with children- every day is different. The children here at St Modwen’s are so inspirational, with so many talents and above all they are spiritual and compassionate. We are regularly complimented on our pupils’ behaviour by visitors to our school and our proudest moments are when we receive feedback from those who visit, monitor and inspect many, many schools, comparing us very favourably indeed! We continuously reflect on the messages from Pope Francis about mercy and the children are very forgiving towards each other during those times when they are less than perfect! My training background is in English/Drama with primary education and it has been wonderful to increase performance and drama opportunities for the St Modwen’s pupils. In my spare time, I enjoy aerial circus skills training, socialising with friends and family and watching Liverpool win. I also support children who are in the foster care system as a respite foster carer. I have professional involvement with the National Association for Head Teachers union, representing Head Teachers at annual conferences and branch meetings.
I enjoy working with other schools to improve opportunities for all of our pupils. We have a close connection with our feeder school Robert Sutton. We are also involved in the Religious Education cluster with Catholic schools in Lichfield and Tamworth. Within the last twelve months we joined the Burton Cooperative Trust as associate members, in order to create working relationships between our staff and the staff from several local schools to share ideas and learn together; it has been fantastic!
We welcome visitors to our annual open days and prospective parents anytime; come along and meet our friendly, welcoming, highly talented staff team!
