My name is Nevin Deakin and I am privileged to be the Headteacher at Marton! Being a Headteacher is a very special job as I am responsible for making lots of decisions and I never forget that every decision I make; is for the benefit of every child…even if that means making unpopular decisions! I have a little boy who loves all things to do with football and is happy playing out all the time! If I have any spare time I love to shop and I love going on holiday and spending time with my family and friends.
Hello, my name is Joanne Bromley. I work as the deputy head teacher at Marton (which I love!) and I teach year four. My only daughter also comes to school at Marton and we especially like the family feel. My degree is in music and I adore all things arty. Theatre is one of my particular passions alongside reading, cooking, swimming and being outside. I have taught in a variety of different educational establishments and also worked outside of teaching, including for an opera company which was fantastic! My main aim as a teacher is to inspire children to be passionate about something, anything, as long as they put their all into it. I also hope to lead by example by trying new things and persevering, even when the challenge is tough.
