Mrs D. Smith – Executive Headteacher


In September 2015, I was appointed Executive Headteacher for Church Hill Middle school and Abbeywood First School to lead the strategic vision for the collaboration of the two schools. I have been Head Teacher at Abbeywood First School since 2008 and before this I was as a Teacher Adviser for Learning and Teaching with the Local Authority. I have experience of teaching in First, Primary and Middle Schools in Worcestershire as an Advanced Skills Teacher. I recently trained as an Ofsted Inspector but am not currently working for Ofsted due to my commitment to our schools at this time of change, however I continue to support local schools as a Local Leader in Education. I have two grown up daughters of whom I am immensely proud. I enjoy going to the theatre, walking, all kinds of sport and visiting new places. Most of all I enjoy working and being with children.
