The Team


Miss L Dixon


SENCo & 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 CE 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 experience I have enjoyed a variety of roles including Key Stage Leader, Assistant Headteacher, Acting Headteacher and SENDCO.

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


Miss E Henderson

School Leader

Designated Safeguarding Lead

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 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. 


Mrs R Sellars

Class Teacher

Oak Class (Tuesday - Friday)

I have been teaching for over 20 years, starting in secondary schools before moving into teaching the primary age group. I have been a parent governor of my children’s school for over 8 years which has allowed me to see schools from a different perspective. I have been fortunate to have travelled to some unusual and different places in the world ranging from Jiri in Nepal the start of the Everest trail; the pyramids and temples in Egypt; and an active volcano in Hawaii all of which can help me bring topics in the classroom to life.


Mr Ben Barton

Class Teacher

Cedar Class 

Before teaching, I initially trained as an actor at the Oxford School of Drama so I am excited to be returning to Oxfordshire for my first teaching position. While working as an actor, I worked as a teaching assistant and fell in love with it. This experience allowed me to work with groups and as a one to one teaching assistant in mainstream and special needs schools in London.

I went on to complete my teacher training with a drama specialism at the Institute of Education, UCL this year. Originally from Stratford upon Avon, I am particularly passionate about Shakespeare and film; I also enjoy art, baking and travelling. I aim to bring my energy and enthusiasm to the classroom to engage the children and allow them to reach their full potential. I believe a classroom should be a colourful and inviting space for growth and learning.


Mrs N Harris

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.”
