The Team


Miss L Dixon


Designated Safeguarding Lead


I have held a Leadership role within the MILL Academy for three years and am excited to start my forth year as Headteacher at Finstock Church of England Primary School.

I started my teaching journey at De Montfort University in Bedfordshire where I studied BEd in Primary Education. This was the perfect setting for me as the university also specialised in Physical Education and Sports so I was able to continue my love for playing competitive sports and keeping active whilst studying for my degree.

Since then I have worked in a variety of primary schools, teaching throughout the primary ages. Over my 14 years in education I have enjoyed a variety of roles including Key Stage Leader, Assistant Headteacher, Acting Headteacher and SENDCO.

Having previously taught in a Church of England school for 8 years, I value the significance of developing our children's understanding of the world through faith teaching.

I am proud and feel extremely lucky to be part of a challenging and most rewarding profession.

Designated Safeguarding Lead

Cedar Class Teacher

In 2009 I graduated from Bishop Grossteste University. I originally taught in Peterborough before moving to Germany and then Cyprus to teach the children of military personal; a wonderful experience after being a military child myself. I was an assistant headteacher in Swindon before joining the team at Queen Emma's and Finstock. 

I have been lucky enough to teach children from Reception to Year 6 and I have absolutely loved the differences that each year group has to offer.  

In my spare time I love to travel, cook and spend time with my little family.

Class teacher

Oak Class Monday-Thursday

Since qualifying as a teacher in 2015, I have worked across schools in both Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire and have now taught across years 1, 2 and 3. Both of my previous schools have been Church of England and I aim to promote the school's Christian values. 

I have spent the last year obtaining a master's degree in Psychology. I have always loved working with children and am looking forward to returning to teaching.

I am passionate about computing, art, PE, and maths and hope to pass my love for these subjects on to the children I teach. I enjoy making learning as creative as possible. 

I am excited to join this wonderful team and look forward to working with the children in Oak Class!

Nursery Nurse

Cherry Class

I chose to work with children as I believe children whatever their age are important to me and for our future. Every child is as important as the next and one of a kind. I want every child that I have the pleasure to meet and teach to achieve however big or small in their life experiences. All children need encouragement, support and curiosity to excel in their talents and to believe in themselves.

My personal values, qualities and teaching are respect, manners, honesty, patience, kindness, encouragement, support, time, to listen, understanding, to feel secure, trust, believe, love and a sense of humour. I feel this is the foundation to great learning experiences and to grow into a well-grounded adult ready for a great work ethics, building relationships, confidence and a “ I can attitude.”
