Mrs Rachel Wademan (Staff) (Maternity Cover)

I graduated from Northumbria University in 2005 with a BA(hons) in Primary Education.  I completed my NQT year in a school in Gateshead before coming to work at Darras Hall in September 2006 as Reception class teacher.  After 3 years I moved from Early Years into Key Stage 1 and I have spent time working in both Year 1 and Year 2.  During this time I have had 2 children and following my return to school after my daughter was born in 2015, I accepted the role of Key Stage 1 Phase leader and English lead across school.  I have also completed both the NPQML and NPQSL qualifications to develop my role as a leader.  I have been a KS1 moderator for Northumberland County Council for 8 years and regularly work with the Standards and Testing Agency and Department for Education to develop the nationwide KS1 reading assessments.

I accepted the role of Staff Governor in September 2019.
