Cate Cooper

Cate has been teaching at Mandeville Primary School since 2009 where she has enjoyed teaching every year group from Early Years to Y5.  Currently Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for leading English and communication across the school, she now teaches in Y2 and leads the KS1 team.

Cate is keen to share outstanding practice as much as possible and has always found networking with colleagues extremely useful.
