Bronagh Nugent: Headteacher
I have spent most of my teaching career in English Martyrs Catholic Primary School where I have been a Year 3 and Year 6 class teacher and Deputy Headteacher before being appointed as Headteacher in 2003.
My most rewarding and enjoyable experiences have been spent with pupils, in the playground encouraging their social interactions, in the dining hall, encouraging healthy eating and good manners but mostly in the classrooms encouraging, supporting and celebrating their learning and success. Be assured that your children come first.
