ACTING Deputy Head Teacher

Miss A Smith


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 4 years and joined St Modwen’s as a Year 5 teacher two years ago. I have previously taught in Year 4. This is my second year as RE Leader and also my first year as a Year 6 teacher. I am eager to further develop and improve RE teaching at St Modwen’s. I am passionate about encouraging discussion and debate through my teaching, helping to equip pupils with important life skills. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, visiting new places, and playing football, tennis and Gaelic football.
