Mrs Hayes is delighted to be returning home to the local area, after spending several years working at a large Junior School in Kent. Prior to this, she completed her teaching degree at Canterbury Christchurch University and has worked in several schools, across both the Independent and State sector.
With a degree in Sports and Exercise Sciences and passion for Outdoor Learning, Mrs Hayes hopes to use the freedom of Chichester Free School to deliver these subjects in creative ways whilst also linking them with the Primary curriculum. She believes that children learn best when taking part in kinaesthetic activities that they thrive in.
Outside of the classroom, Mrs Hayes enjoys outdoor sports such as sailing and skiing. She hopes to share these passions with the children and staff!
