Staff Profiles


Mrs Deakin

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. I never forget that every decision I make is for the benefit of every child even if that means making unpopular decisions! I have been a Headteacher of three schools to date and Marton has a very special place in my heart.  I have a teenage son who loves all things to do with football and as a family we are great football supporters, we just don’t support the same team – which means we have lots of discussions, although some may call these disagreements!  We now have a puppy, Libby, who has changed our lives and whom we all adore! If I have any spare time I love to shop and read constantly. I love going on holiday and spending time with family and friends

Mrs Field

My name is Johanna Field and I am the year 2 teacher and Deputy Headteacher at Marton. I joined the school in 2012 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 two daughters Olivia and Darcy. My daughters are my absolute world and I love to spend as much time as possible with them. We like to walk our two crazy dogs Bert and Fern, go out to nice places (not with the dogs) and eat lots of adventurous food. 

Mrs Wilson

Hello, my name is Lucy Wilson and I am the Year 6 teacher and SENCo here at Marton.  At university I studied for a degree in English Literature and Language and then went on to do a Primary PGCE, SENCo accreditation and and Masters degree at MMU. 

I have taught in many year groups throughout the school, including the infants, but I absolutely adore teaching Year 6 - I love helping little people become little adults (as well as preparing for SATs!)

Outside of school, I enjoying reading, baking and spending time with my friends and family - especially my daughters.

It’s clear to say that Marton and its heart-warming ethos and traditions hold a very dear place in my heart and I feel that it’s a very special place indeed.

In my spare time at home, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.I love to perform and make people smile (which I aim to do every day in the classroom) as well as sing at the top of my voice along to my iPod on a Saturday Morning!

Time has really flown and during this time the school has continued to flourish. I am in charge of the sport at Marton and we have had some fantastic success over the last couple of years and I hope that this continues. Even though Marton is a small school, we always compete and do well against the larger Congleton schools, it's always a pleasure to take the children to the many different competitions.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two children, running and can often be found cycling round the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
