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.
My name is Johanna Field and I am the year 2 teacher and Deputy Headteacher at Marton. I have been at the school for 6 years and I really do have the best job in the world!! No two days are ever the same and I feel so privileged to have a positive impact on little people’s learning. I studied for my degree in drama with music at MMU and then completed my PGCE at the University of Cumbria after having my family. I live with my husband and two daughters Olivia and Darcy. My family are very important to me and I spend as much time with them as possible. Our favourite place is Rhosneigr in Anglesey, where we walk lots on the beach and eat ice cream by the bucket full!

I pride myself in getting to know all the individuals in my classroom and ensure I find out what makes each of them tick.
