Kate Fiddler  Headteacher

Since having started as the new Headteacher of Shenley Primary School in September, I love coming and being be such an integral part of this special community.

I have been a teacher and senior leader for the last 17 years, all in primary education, and I believe that every child has the right to receive an outstanding education. 

At Shenley, we have a very committed and dedicated team of staff and Governors, who all want the best for the children in our care. With the right environment and direction, Shenley will continue to go from strength to strength and we will continue to build on the many successes and strengths.

I am excited to be a part of this new chapter for our school and remain driven to ensure that Shenley becomes a securely 'good' school.

I moved to Shenley in 2007 and joined the governing body in 2014. I have a son who attended the school for 8 years up to July 2018.  As Chair, I attend all committee/full governing body meetings. I also visit the school on a regular basis to meet with the Headteacher and receive updates on school progress. I strongly believe that every child deserves the best education possible and it is a privilege for me to be able to offer my support to the school community.

After spending 22 years working in schools, 18 years as a teacher and 4 years as a headteacher, I decided it was time to give back to my local community by joining the governing body at Shenley Primary in the summer of 2019.  Since leaving education, I now work as a content editor for The Key Support Services which provides information for school leaders.
I'm a member of the learning and achievement committee and I look forward to using my knowledge and understanding of education to helping and supporting Shenley Primary School to become the best it can be.

Rebecca Rocha - Assistant Head, L&A Committee

Driving forward the improvement at Shenley is a matter close to my heart. Teaching and learning is my passion and I whole-heartedly believe that each and every single child and family that comes through our doors deserves nothing but the best. This is not only in terms of their academic achievement but also allowing every pupil to flourish in every respect so that they are fully confident and ready to move on to the next stage in their education and their future. My role as Assistant Headteacher, Associate Member of the Governing Body and being part of the ‘Learning and Achievement’ committee enables me to promote the highest standards that we all want to achieve and in every facet of school life. I joined the school in 2014 as a Phase Leader and English Lead and during my career I have worked in schools across London. I have two boys of my own, aged 2 and 6, and both them, my husband and I love the outdoors; moving to Hertfordshire four years ago has been a fantastic move for all of the family and a place we now call home.

I have worked as a teacher at Shenley Primary School since September 2009 and have since become an Assistant Head teacher and an Associate Member of the Governing Body. I am extremely passionate about my job as both a teacher and leader of the school. I am proud of Shenley as a school; and as an educator I always strive to deliver the best for the children. Being an Associate Member means I can become even more involved in the schools strategic direction which is something I have always been keen to be part of.
