Assistant Head
and SENCo

Following in the footsteps of my mum, I knew that one day I too would become a teacher. I was truly inspired by her love and dedication to working with children. Once I became a qualified teacher and my career began to develop into the role of the SENCo, I realised that there were children who required a little bit of extra support and I wanted to be the person to help make a difference in their lives. I feel truly privileged to work alongside our parents, teachers and wider professionals, but most of all our children.

Mrs Bowles

Head of School

As a young girl, I loved school and decided quite early that I wanted to teach. I was 10/11 and it was my then teacher who inspired me: he was funny,  interesting (and really strict) and he made every lesson amazing. I knew then that I wanted to do that too! I worked hard to achieve my goal... I have always loved to read - I devoured books and my family got very used to finding 'piles of books' in every room that I was reading. So it seemed natural that I would specialise in English. I have remained passionate and driven about both teaching and reading over the many long years I have been teaching. It is my greatest pleasure to talk about books and stories with children; to read their writing and to see their faces 'light up' when they master something they couldn't do before. I truly believe that we all have a dream inside us, and if we work hard toward it, we can achieve anything and everything.

Mr Colley

Acting Deputy Head of School
and Acting SENCo

This will be my tenth year in teaching and I could never imagine doing anything else! From an early age I enjoyed being part of a team and loved helping people, so teaching was always the perfect job for me. I studied Sports Science at University and enjoy competing in crossfit when I’m not spending time with my family and friends. I’m so excited to be a fully fledged member of the Winyates family.

Here are a few words from our Head of School – Deboragh Bowles:

I feel privileged to be the Head of school at Winyates Primary and I know that by working together we will all make a difference to the lives of all the children who come here. I believe we are a partnership – the school and the home and we can achieve great things as a team.

I have a real passion for learning and before becoming Head of School at Winyates, I was an English specialist so it is my belief that reading is the key to success! I know stories unlock magical worlds and words hold secrets for all (adults and children alike) to share in.

I look forward to our journey together and I know we will experience many successes this year and every year! Winyates is an amazing school with fantastic children and families; staff, classrooms and outdoor learning spaces, I know we can achieve great things!
