St. Paul's Catholic School
The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School
Thames Ditton, Surrey
Hayley started her teaching career in 1992, and joined St Paul’s in 2014, firstly on a part time basis and then as a full time class teacher. She successfully combines being a mother of 4 children and an outstanding class room teacher.
Hayley’s students adore her. More importantly they trust her and this has allowed Hayley to ask them to perform their very best. Their parents know that there is something magical unfolding and they are only too eager support the efforts within class.
What sets Hayley apart is her desire to keep learning. Thus when new initiatives are being trialled she is at the front of the line looking to participate. The progress that her children make is strong and this is because Hayley constructs lessons and learning opportunities specifically for the needs of her children.
