Wood Farm Primary School

Ms Connelly (Deputy head)

Hello, I’m Ms Connelly, one of the Deputy Headteachers who help Mr Lewin to make sure our school is a great place for your children.

I have worked at the school since 2003, so I will know many of your siblings and even some of your parents.

In school I work with lots of families, and I love getting to know all about your lives beyond the school day. I am really looking forward to meeting all of our new children and families this year.

Outside of school, I am a mother of two children, Daniel (just about 14) and Jasmine 8. My children are pretty sporty, so I spend lots of time watching them train and perform. 

I am not originally from Oxford, I moved here almost 20 years ago from the seaside town of South Shields in the North East of England. So, no surprises that my favourite place is by the sea.  I love to walk for miles along the coast.

I also love to read.  This summer I really enjoyed reading Charlotte’s Web with my daughter. I remembered reading this book myself as a child.
