Meet the Team

Miss Louise Brown

Head Teacher

I am Louise Brown, Head Teacher here at Dedworth Green First School - a school which has always been close to my heart after I completed my final teaching practice here whilst studying at the University of Reading. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would return one day as Head Teacher!

Prior to returning to DGFS in 2015, I have taught many different age ranges at two Primary Schools in Nottinghamshire and Doncaster. I have also completed post graduate qualifications in Special Educational Needs and Mathematics, and Leadership in Education which has helped me to have a greater understanding of theories behind teaching and how to lead school improvement. The experience I have gained in other settings has provided me with lots of ideas on how I can make our school here in Dedworth even better! I have also been a governor at two other schools prior to joining the governing body here.

In my spare time I love shopping, spending time with friends and family and sometimes going to watch Reading football games (although they never seem to win when I go and watch!)!

I am passionate about making a difference for the children, families and local Dedworth community and look forward to working with you all.

Mrs Cindy Barry

Acting Head Teacher

I am Cindy Barry and I have been working here at Dedworth Green for the past 9 years where my teaching career began. Since being at the school I have taught in Reception, Year 1, Year 3 and year 4. I have also recently been appointed Assistant Head Teacher which I am thoroughly looking forward to. Dedworth is an amazing school with wonderful children, staff and parents.

Before my teaching career began I started off as a nursery nurse working with children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. I loved working with, nurturing and supporting children which encouraged me to begin teaching.

In my spare time I spend time with my husband James and my son Lucas. I also enjoy swimming, reading and running which I have started to do more of recently.

I am currently Acting Head Teacher of DGFS whilst Miss Brown is on maternity leave.

Mrs Sarah Vickers

Nuture and Pastoral Care Manager and Year 3 teacher

I am now in my 5th year of working at Dedworth Green First School and I absolutely love it here.The School staff team are great and it's like having a second family around you. This year I have taken on the role of teaching year 3 and I am thoroughly enjoying not only teaching the children but getting to know them and their families better.
Apart from Teaching this year my role is as Nurture Manager and we usually have a Reception Nurture group of about 8 children whom we support each year in the Sunshine room in the mornings and then we do additional support sessions for other key groups of children to enhance their confidence,self - esteem and well- being throughout the year.During my time here we have gained both the Quality Mark Award for our Nurture provision and also National Nurturing Schools status which says a great deal about our whole ethos and values as a staff and our School.
I have 3 children who are now all in their 30's and 5 grandchildren,some of them have visited with me during the School holidays when I have projects that I am creating and they always say how they would love to come to DGFS and what a lovely place it is.
I hope to be here for many more years and enhance our nurturing ethos even further.

Miss Rochelle Richardson

Year 4 Teacher and KS1/2 Phase Lead

Hello! I am not surprised I am a teacher at Dedworth Green First School as I was a pupil at the Middle School, after a family move. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to experience Dedworth First as a child, however the great experience I have working here as an adult; I know I would have been incredibly happy here.

After graduating from Winchester University with a Drama degree (initially wanting to become a secondary drama teacher), I was lucky enough to secure a teaching assistant role at Dedworth Green First School. I quickly trained to become a primary school teacher at DGFS and continue to love teaching five years later. I aspire to leave every pupil I teach with a positive experience of learning that will impact a tiny part of them for life. It has been a privilege to look after Key Stage 1 and 2, giving me the chance to communicate with even more families and children to support their education.

When I am not teaching, I am learning Spanish, spending time with loved ones and enjoying siestas!

Mrs Nusheen Awan

Reception Class Teacher and EYFS Phase Lead

Hello. My name is Nusheen Awan and I teach Reception and Lead the Early Years (Nursery & Reception) at DGFS. I have been teaching Early Years for over twenty years but this is my second year of teaching in Windsor. I work with a great team of happy, smiley people and we strive to create a vibrant and stimulating learning environment for our Nursery and Reception children, where they feel safe and secure as they explore and find out about the world around them. I love storytelling, creative projects, singing and exploring the outdoors with children as they learn about our amazing world.
We are also currently creating plans and designs to further develop our extensive outdoor area.
At home, I have a grown up family of three daughters, two currently at University and a husband who makes me laugh! I enjoy cooking, creating art, cycling and watching Marvel films.

Miss Holly Foulkes

Year 2 Teacher, English and PE lead

My name is Holly Foulkes. I have worked at Dedworth Green First School for the last five years.
I have attended Windsor schools throughout my school career before attending Kingston university and am thrilled to be working back in the Windsor schools community. My degree was for Primary education with English specialism. My passions are keeping fit and reading a wide range of literature, which is fitting as I am both the English and PE lead for the school.

Since becoming the PE lead I have maintained the school games gold award for four years at Dedworth Green First School and after the allotted time will be going for platinum! I was also able to get the outdoor gym for the students and enrich them with after school and in school physical activities, including introducing the daily mile. I encourage both staff and pupils alike to stay active and healthy as a lifestyle choice and something you 'get' to do not 'have' to do.

I am new to the role of English lead but am excited to take this new challenge on and develop a love of English that was instilled in me at school across the year groups.
I have lived locally my whole life and when I am not at school I love long walks in the country, playing sports like badminton, cooking and reading.

I also enjoy encouraging the children’s self-help skills to watch them grow and learn to be independent.
