Mr R Kitching

My name is Mr Kitching and I'm proud to be the Headteacher of the Woodlands Federation. I have worked in a variety of schools and held a range of leadership positions during my career. I passionately believe in the wonderful educational experience that small, village schools can offer and I enjoy working in partnership with everyone in our Federation community to ensure the very best for our pupils.

Miss J Allen

My name is Miss Allen and I teach Year 2, 3 and 4. I am looking forward to working with the children to show them the excitement around learning. My favourite subjects to teach are music and history, so you will hear us all singing in a lot of our lessons to help us learn new information. I know that the children make this school a wonderful place to learn, and I am delighted to be a part of the teaching staff here.
