In January 2020, Jane became the Interim Headteacher at St Michael’s CE Primary School in Bartley Green and took over the position permanently in April 2020.  Previously, Jane was Headteacher at Quinton Church Primary School from January 2019 having been part of the Barchelai Multi Academy Trust for 4 years.  Born and brought up in South Wales, Jane came to Birmingham for university and has been here ever since.  Having taught in all year groups in the primary phase, she has enjoyed leading Numeracy, Literacy, Music and P.E. in a number of schools in Birmingham.  She enjoys participating in sports and is a keen musician.  The education of the whole child through opportunities to enrich their lives in activities that broaden and deepen learning is at the heart of Jane’s philosophy for education.  Encompassing the Christian values that are key to BDMAT alongside welcoming the children of the community into a caring, secure and safe environment is a priority for Jane in her headship.
