Mrs Charlotte Hammond - School Governor
Charlotte Hammond is the year 3 and 4 teacher at our school. She joined the teaching team here after thirteen years of teaching experience in a school in Essex, where she became a member of the leadership team and led the curriculum areas of geography, pupil voice, P.E. and science. Since her move to Suffolk, Charlotte wanted to learn more about the school and the local community which it serves; therefore, she chose to become a governor at the school. In doing so, she hopes to grow strong relationships with parents, as well as making further links between the school and the local area. Charlotte leads the school council at Holton St Peter and supports them with fundraising projects and decision making about the school in which they love to learn in. She feels that it is important to prepare the children we teach for the world beyond our wonderful school and therefore works to ensure they have the skills required to achieve their hopes and dreams in the years to come.
