Sarah Lulham

EYFS Leader Nursery Teacher

I enjoy every bit of my job and making a difference in children's lives is very fulfilling. I love to share knowledge and experience but also marvel at learning new things along the way. I hope to encourage the children I work with to be confident, independent learners who will have a life long love of learning.

Monica Paines


I believe that education is a vital key to happiness and success. It is for that reason that I want every child to know what learning something new feels like and also what it feels like to work to achieve something meaningful. Add these together with a smattering of fun, laughter and memory days—that’s why I love my job !

Sharon Emmett

Deputy Headteacher

I believe that it is vital we develop children’s thirst for knowledge, their confidence in themselves  and a resilience  to learn and develop as individuals. When I see happy children, who are excited by learning;  children who have the ability to learn from their mistakes- I know we have done our best to achieve this and we can celebrate the children’s success.

I have been a staff governor since I took up the post of Deputy Head / Inclusion Manager at LDIN in September 2011. I have served on all of the committees am part of the Children and Learning Committee and the Resources Committee . I am passionate about inclusion and ensuring all children have the opportunity to be the be the best they can be.

I have a great passion for teaching and learning. I teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. The interests of the children are embedded in the classroom which ensures the children’s learning is personalised and relevant to life.
