Miss Garland - Headteacher

CG

I’m thrilled to be the head teacher of Catsfield C of E Primary School. My teaching career now stretches over twenty five years and I have worked in many schools both as a teacher and a teaching and learning consultant for East Sussex and Lancashire. I’m passionate about all our pupils reaching their full potential as they start out on their journey to achieve their dreams. I know our school is a wonderful place to begin their learning with a very supportive community around us.

I love a good book, moto gp and spending time in my garden. If you’re really unlucky you might spot me trying to keep fit running through the village (defintiely no where near the amazing talents of Mrs Hennessy who you wil find out about a little further below).

Since qualifying as a teacher in 2003 I have worn a few different hats over the years! I have taught reception, year 1 and year 2 as well as being a SENCO.  Here at Catsfield I teach Tigers four days a week, I am also the Deputy head and SENCO.

There is never a dull moment teaching reception children and I love it! I feel very lucky to be getting to know our children and families right from the start of their time at Catsfield.  

When I am not at school I enjoy reading, yoga, the occasional run and spending time with my own children. We love walking our dog along the seafront, in the woods or snuggling up on the sofa!

From the moment I started primary school I knew I wanted to be a teacher, at first a music teacher, then a ballet teacher and finally settled on being a primary teacher. I have now been teaching for 12 years and can honestly say I have loved every minute of it. Before starting at Catsfield I worked in London for 6 years.

When I’m not in school nothing gives me greater pleasure than spending time with my family and my excitable dog. I love going to the theatre (although I don’t get to go as often as I’d like) and recently I have begun to find my green fingers.

This is my sixth year at Catsfield and I have loved every minute. During my time here I became a Mummy and I now share my teaching time; working in Lions on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Outside of school I enjoy spending my time with friends and family. I also enjoy keeping active and walking my dog. Recently, I have taken up running and have started to enter local events.

I have been teaching for 28 years and joined Catsfield in January.  I have taught many year groups, up to and including Year 8 and have a French specialism. At my previous school I was the Pastoral Care Leader and ran a multi disciplinary team to support the children.

I love travel and made the most of  two years teaching in Harrow International School, in Bangkok Thailand, which allowed me to indulge my passion.

I have a dog called Chico, who used to come and help in class, a rescue cat and three hens. In recent years my neighbours and I raised three litters of piglets; I am a country girl at heart!

I have been teaching for seven years and am delighted to have become part of the Catsfield CEP team. I am curriculum leader for geography and history which reflects two of my interests outside of school.

Two of my greatest passions are music and sport. I used to be in a band, many years ago and am currently learning to play keyboards. Over the years I have run more than ten marathons, competed in lots of triathlons and qualified for the amateur cycling world championships in 2018.
