|Headteacher: Mr M Poppitt
I have been the Headteacher at Whinstone since 2003. I have taught in six schools from as far south as Folkestone to as far north as Rothbury! Whinstone is the third school I have had the fortune to be Headteacher, and it must be the most satisfying as I have worked here for longer than any other school. I am immensely proud of the opportunities we offer here to children and staff.Out of school I am a proud dad to my three little Poppitts, and spend most of my time driving them to rugby, swimming, netball, gymnastics and hockey, my carbon footprint is even larger than my size 13 feet!
|Deputy Headteacher: Mr R Craig
Hello, I’ve worked in Whinstone Primary School since 2002 and been the Deputy Headteacher for the last 7 years. Whinstone Primary is a great place to work, everyone is happy and the pupils are fantastic.
I have three of my own boys who keep me very busy, usually with helping them with their homework and driving them to and from different sports clubs! If I manage to find any spare time I like to bike ride, read and enjoy family holidays.
