Miss Keitch

Headteacher, SENDCO & DSL

Hi, I'm Miss Keitch. I am a highly experienced teacher, Senior Leader, Inclusion Manager and mentor, with over 16 years of experience working directly with children, families, schools, their leaders, governing bodies and the wider community. My priority is to put children at the heart of everything we do to ensure everyone can make a positive contribution to our school. My vision is to encourage everyone to develop a love of learning and a curiosity and fascination with the world we live in. I have high aspirations for all children and an expectation that they will excel and achieve their potential. I am passionate about giving children the best possible education and access to opportunities, all with the aim of promoting and reinforcing independence, self-esteem and aspiration.

Outside of school I love exploring the fells, running, walking my dog and baking.

Working at Crosby for many years, most of you will probably know me quite well already, for those that don't, I work mostly in Class 4 but spend some time in Class 3 and 2 during the week. As my girls, (who are now in their twenties) were Crosby pupils, I have been in the unique position of seeing how decisions made as staff and governors directly impact the children. To see how parents’ and pupils’ views are listened to, and how it shapes changes in school.
