Staff Profiles

Angela Molloy, Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion

Transitioning from a career as a nursery nurse to achieving a degree in child and youth studies and a post graduate certificate in education, Angela joined St Peter Chanel in 2022 as Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion.

“I am passionate about supporting the development of all children as individuals, removing the barriers to ensure they achieve the very best they can. Every day in teaching is rewarding, knowing that you’ve made a difference to future lives, whether that be by sharing knowledge, developing skills or nurturing self-confidence and self-esteem. 

St Peter Chanel is a small unique school where every member of its community is recognised for their valuable contributions, offered opportunities to develop and grow to their full potential, and celebrated. Learning is challenging, stimulating, creative, interactive and fun, allowing the children to develop their own interests and strengths in a safe and supportive environment.

We are also proud to be a part of SELCAT, an outward facing Trust committed to providing high quality professional development opportunities for its members. The benefits of being part of the Trust include the opportunities for networking, sharing of expertise, resources and best practice across different borough schools. Relationships and connections with others are fundamental in learning.” 

Lisa Forsythe, Early Career Teacher

Lisa is St Peter Chanel’s newest staff member, having joined in the Autumn Term of 2023.

“I was fortunate enough to complete my teacher training at St Peter Chanel and knew this was the school to develop my career. The school’s strong ethos and positive learning environment alongside its encouraging and supportive teachers make it a lovely place to work. Children enjoy coming to St Peter Chanel because we work hard to create fun and engaging lessons for them to flourish in their learning. There is a focus around celebrating all their achievements, no matter how small it may be. Being relatively new to the school, I am looking forward to reaping the benefits of being a part of SELCAT and learning from more experienced teachers to be a great one myself.”

Kate Coveney, Pre-School Practitioner

Kate has deep connections with St Peter Chanel, having worked at the school for 15 years and having had four children educated at the school.

“With a passion for making a difference to young people’s lives and supporting children to extend their learning and reach their full potential, I knew a career in primary education would be for me. I was also keen to give others the amazing school experience I had myself.

I was drawn to St Peter Chanel because of the impact the school had on my own children’s lives – it is a lovely small school which laid strong foundations through the imparting of Catholic values. What’s more, the school has beautiful grounds to enjoy as well as an array of extended services and afterschool clubs, allowing pupils to pursue and develop their talents.

What makes my role rewarding is the opportunity to have both academic and pastoral responsibilities, from teaching children the basic skills of listening and speaking to supporting parents and their children with SEN. The impact we have on pupils’ personal and academic growth during their early stages is incredibly fulfilling for me. I am looking forward to continuing my practice and sharing ideas and experiences amongst others within SELCAT. Being a part of the Trust is fantastic as we get to help and support each other by offering and receiving support, guidance and best practice.”
