Headteacher Peter is a retired police officer. He has been involved in education for 30 years, including adult education, the voluntary sector and over 15 years in primary schools, five of these as a Headteacher.      

Over four years at Millbrook, Peter’s tenacity and vision have breathed life back into this one form entry primary school. His professional outlook is borne out of his police career, where working with the community was a priority.  He has actively raised aspirations by regularly engaging high-profile visitors including scientist Sir Robert Winston as well as authors and sports champions. 

Wellbeing is at the forefront of Peter’s values. The introduction of staff initiatives such as Golden Ticket, thank you cards and rewards like an afternoon tea are popular and help staff to feel valued. 

It is important to Peter that the children under his care grow their understanding of the world around them.  As an enthusiastic runner of 30 years, running 110 marathons across the globe, he encourages children to participate in charity runs and think about others.
