Role of the Governing Body 

Scheme of Delegation 

Kate Curtis - Headteacher

I am the very proud headteacher of Talbot Primary School. I love my job and especially enjoy spending time with our wonderful pupils.

When I am not at school I like to spend time with my lovely boys. Ross, who is here at Talbot and James, who did attend Talbot, before moving on to his secondary school.

We especially enjoy eating biscuits in bed on a Sunday morning!

I love scuba diving and if I can find water warm enough, I'm in it! I also enjoy reading, going to the cinema, painting and drawing, Karaoke, dancing and spending time on my parents farm.

Gemma Jefferson-Peters - Chair of Governors

Chair of Governors and Parent Governor, I

have worked for the Lloyds Banking Group for

11 years and is passionate about education and
the school. My daughter is in Year 6 and loves
Talbot.        

 

 

 

Ross Browne - Deputy Head

Teaching and learning and the development of our curriculum are the key areas that I oversee at Talbot. When I'm not here I can be found playing football, reading and eating great food, although not all at the same time. I can often be found first thing in the morning dishing out bagels to our children.
