Faye started as an NQT and is now Early Years Leader and a Specialist Leader for Education, providing school to school support for other Early Years practitioners in other schools.

Over the 4 years she has worked at The Meadow she has helped to transform the learning environment, specifically the outdoor learning area and has introducedForest School for all pupils.

She is highly committed to ensuring all pupils, whatever their prior experiences and starting points are entitled to the best start at school and have the opportunity to achieve the highest possible standards whilst loving their learning.
