Miss Garland - Headteacher

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! 


Mrs Briley - Deputy Head & Year 5/6

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. 


Mrs Maynard - Year 3/4

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.

Miss Kirk - Year 1/2

I am in my sixth year of teaching and can’t imagine doing anything else. Previously, I have taught reception, year 3 and year 4 in Surrey.  After joining the school in April, I am excited to be working at Catsfield as the year 1/2 teacher.

When I am not at school, I enjoy cooking, baking and reading. I also like going to the gym and socialising with family and friends. During the holidays, I enjoy visiting different countries and travelling.


Mrs Harwood - Early Years

I am incredibly excited to be starting my teaching journey at Catsfield primary this year. I trained as a classical singer during my time at university, which led me to become a private vocal tutor. Through this I found a love for teaching and can’t wait to have my own class.

I absolutely love to be outdoors walking my dog, going horse-riding or going to the beach (I love marine life, especially sharks). I have also recently began CrossFit training which is brilliant but can cause me to walk a bit like a stiff robot the next day.
