Support Team

We have a great team in school making sure everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

Our School Business Manager, Julie Foster, is in charge of our finances, making sure we spend sensibly and cost-effectively. She is involved in the organisation and procurement of all school projects and is a key link between teaching staff, governors and the admin team. She is ably assisted by Stephanie Chandler, our Finance Officer.

Our Site Controller, Andy Rapson, is instrumental in keeping the school looking fantastic and is involved in all improvement projects around the site. He has a group of cleaners who have been associated with the school for many years and take great pride in keeping all the learning areas sparkling clean.

Our Admin team Penny-Lynn Bater, Amy Heath and Kirsten Cowell, man the front desk and provide the link between home and school. They are a font of wisdom and will be able to provide you with any information you require regarding admissions, uniform, school trips, etc.

Our Home School Link Worker, Amanda Morgan, offers families with children at Whiteknights discreet, independent support and advice. This support covers a wide range of needs such as parenting issues, putting you in touch with other organisations, accessing local groups, and generally managing the complexities of family life.

Our IT Technician, Carolyn Lee, works tirelessly to keep the IT side of the school running smoothly with the help of our offsite maintenance company Inspired ICT. Carolyn also manages our school library.

Lesley Jimenez-Lares runs our Breakfast Club and After School Club with the assistance of a group of very able assistants. Lesley also teaches the children cookery in the afternoon.

Laura Chant runs our Outdoor Learning Department, giving small groups of children access to the fantastic outdoor school environment.

Paula Curtis is our Lunchtime Supervisor, ensuring that our lunch sessions run smoothly with the help of a team of lunchtime controllers - many of whom have other positions within the school.

Finally, we have a large team of classroom assistants with many skills which are fully utilised in teaching small groups and helping in the classroom.

An enthusiastic and committed team with a wealth of experience ..... the school cannot operate without them!
