At Cuffley we have a large, committed staff of teachers, learning support, administrative and office staff, kitchen staff and cleaners, as well as peripatetic music teachers and specialised coaches, all working closely together to ensure that our school is a safe and happy learning community.
The Headteacher is Mrs Wendy Wing. She has led Cuffley School since April 2010. She has over 27 years experience in teaching in a range of schools in Hertfordshire and Enfield. As well as leading Cuffley, she acts as a consultant Schools Effective Advisor (SEA) supporting other Hertfordshire schools with school improvement, as well as acting as a Professional Partner to new headteachers. She is committed to system leadership, chairing the local schools’ consortium and sits on various committees and panels in order to improve outcomes for children across Hertfordshire. Mrs Wing is our Designated Safeguarding Lead.
Mrs Charlotte Lloyd is our Deputy Headteacher. She has over 10 years experience teaching in London schools. She brings specialisms in English and technology and is confident teaching across the key stages. She is a trained Local Authority Moderator. She is one of our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.
We have 18 teachers, based in class and in support roles, who range from early career to highly experienced teachers, along with a number of teaching assistants and support staff. It is a strong and collaborative team.
