 Meet the Senior Leadership Team

Mrs Walls - KS2 Lead, DDSL, RE Subject Leader

I have been working at Naunton Park since 2001 and during this time I have taught in all year groups between years 2 to 6.I feel very fortunate to work alongside a very caring and supportive team. I am currently teaching year six and am phase leader for Key Stage 2 as well as leading RE throughout the school. 

As teaching is a job that keeps you incredibly busy, I make time to prioritise exercise as I find this really helps my well-being. Outside of school, I run several times a week and can usually be seen at a Park Run on a Saturday morning where I also try to find time to volunteer on occasion. I also play netball and enjoy passing on my passion for this sport in school to the children who come to netball club and make it my aim for all these children to represent the school team. One of the highlights of the school year for me is the staff V Year six netball match which we play in the summer term. 

I am married and have two children: Emily who is 17 and Joe who is 14. A lot of my weekends are spent driving them around to their various sporting matches which I love to watch.


Miss Hudson - Deputy Headteacher and DSL

I have worked at Naunton Park since 2016 as Deputy Head and previously Acting Head on a couple of occasions.  I have enjoyed watching the school grow and feel so proud of all the children and staff for all achievements over the last few years.

Away from school, I enjoy playing/umpiring netball, watching rugby and going on holiday to Salcombe.  I spend most of my time being a taxi-driver for my daughter and cheering her on from the side of a lake or canal while she rows.  There's also my husband, two step-children and puppy (Lucy) at home to keep me busy!


Mrs Turner - Inclusion Lead and DDSL

Mrs Farrow - EYFS Lead, DDSL and Music Subject Leader

I love, love, love to read.  I have a library of books in shelves built by my brother.  Some books are old favourites that are re-read after a period of time and others are old friends that are so gorgeous, they just remain on the shelves.  I read paper and hardback books but also have a Kindle that is loved for popping in a bag for holidays and any time spent waiting.

When I was 15 years old (many moons ago) my family got our first TV.  I really enjoy crime dramas, cookery programmes (especially those set abroad) and home make over shows.

I enjoy spending time outside - 'there is no such thing as the wrong weather, just the wrong clothes'.  I love to garden and enjoy talking to the children in my class about plants, birds and how seasons make our world change.  I also enjoy walking whether that be in rolling hills or by the sea.  I was fortunate to grow up 10 minutes from the beach whilst growing up on the south coast.

I believe, as a result of no TV growing up, I enjoy not only reading but also sewing.  I went to night school to learn to reupholster furniture and can also turn my hand to many things that involve hand sewing, embroidery and using a sewing machine.  I still use my sewing machine that was bought for me when I was 14.  I studied Textiles at Uni - you may see the evidence of this in my very loud summer trousers and also a love of scarves (I have promised myself no more but....!!!)

Any food that involves pasta is my food heaven.  I enjoy cooking sauces from scratch, sometimes late into the evening.  Spaghetti bolognaise is my favourite. 

My family are very important to me.  I have 2 nieces and 4 nephews.  I am also dog aunt to my sisters 4 fabulous pooches - 3 cocker spaniels and 1 cockerpoo.

My job - I have been an early years teacher for more than 20 years.  I love that each day is different, filled will moments of joy, new experiences, sharing new ideas and knowledge.  I still enjoy the thrill of the first time....and sharing true moments of magic with those in my class, children in the EYFS unit and the rest of the school.  As an EYFS teacher, you remember every class.  I feel privileged to share every day with all the children in my care and to enable them to have powerful learning experiences that are lead by them and enabled by me and my team.
