Nicki has worked at Welland Park Academy since 2004. She is the Headteacher’s PA and the school’s HR Lead. She heads up the school PTA and the student Prom committee and works with local community groups to organise bake sales and scarecrow festivals.

Nicki has recently trained to become a mental health first aider in school and she mentors Pupil Premium Students. She helps them plan their revision, manage their day, organise their homework, cope with the exam pressure and plan for a balanced lifestyle.  Nicki is described as a ‘selfless, all-round good egg who puts everyone else first’. She helps organise the school ‘secret buddy’ scheme and keeps up morale in the front office. All the parents know her, she is a huge personality and staff say she epitomises Welland Park’s family feel.
