Support Staff

At Bar Hill Primary School we are fortunate to have strength in depth. Our Administration Team and Support Staff are valued members of our team and work hard to ensure our children receive the best possible education and care.

I have lived in Bar Hill since 1988 and have been the school secretary since 1998. I love the job (most days!) and the interaction between staff, pupils and community.
Jayne Bacon (Financial Secretary)
I’ve worked at the school now for several years. I love my job and the school is a really warm and friendly place to work.
Jenny Dedman (Admin Assistant)
I am married with three children. My children all attended Bar Hill school before going on to Swavesey Village College. I worked at one of the local playgroups for five years before starting work as a teacher support in September 2000. I am also Clerk to the Governing Body.

Site Manager

Steve Tabram
Since starting work at Bar Hill School in 2009, I have enjoyed building, painting and changing parts of the school, all to benefit the children. Lately I have built a covered area so that EYFS children can play outside – whatever the weather! I always have a project on the go! I love riding my motorbikes and going away in our motor home.

I enjoy the day to day variety of the work and watching the progress of the children through the school. I enjoy coaching the school cricket team and we have been successful in the competitions we have entered.
Clare Lewin
September 2013 saw me enter my 10th year at Bar Hill School.  When I started, both of my sons were also at the school but they have since moved on and left me behind.  Although I have worked in other areas of the school, I have spent most of my time with the children in years 3 and 4.  One of my main aims is to nurture a love of reading.

I enjoy being part of the school community and helping children to succeed. It is particularly rewarding to have worked along side so many children and seen them progress from reception to year 6. My family have lived in Bar Hill for over 16 years and my children have all attended Bar Hill School. I lead a busy life and enjoy any precious time that I get to myself.
