Head Teacher  

Mrs A Sherratt


Deputy Head Teacher

Miss A Smith

I have worked at St Modwen’s for 8 years, teaching across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.  I am the subject leader for RE and PE and thoroughly enjoy teaching Maths and Reading.  My role at school is extremely varied and keeps me busy!  I am passionate about helping children reach their God-given potential and supporting them to find the subject they love the most!  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, keeping fit and taking part in fundraisers to raise money for charity!  


Assistant Head Teacher

Mrs L Chadfield

I have been a teacher for over 8 years and have been EYFS Leader, Assistant Head and Maths Leader for 3 years at St Modwen’s. I have taught throughout all of KS1 and have thoroughly enjoyed helping children to develop across the phase. My passion lies in Early Years, where children have their very first experiences of school and I, along with my team of great staff, am able to nurture their love of learning from a young age. Our focus is on developing independent learners who are able to achieve their full potential as they continue their journey through school. In my spare time I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my three young nephews who keep me active!

Assistant Head Teacher

Mr D Quinn

I have been a teacher for over nine years and joined St Modwen’s six years ago.  I am the Maths subject leader and am passionate about Mastery Maths and instilling a belief in all pupils that they can succeed.  I love teaching Maths, RE, Reading, Geography and History.  I am passionate about fostering a love of learning in all pupils and giving them the confidence and skills they need to succeed.  I have a young son who I love spending time with.  In my spare time, I enjoy playing Gaelic football, football, running and walking my dog.
