    Head of School (Infants)

    Hello, my name is Erica McGinley and I will be Head of School (Infants) at Poplar Farm School in September 2018.

    I am looking forward to building a school which offers an exciting and varied curriculum and which ensures that all pupils reach their potential.

    I have taught both Foundation Stage and Year One for the last 8 years at an Outstanding Infant school in Nottinghamshire, where I was also Deputy Head and Foundation Stage Lead. I have a passion for Early Years education and I have worked with schools to develop EYFS teaching as an Early Years SLE, and as an EYFS Moderator for Nottinghamshire County Council.

    I am also a Maths SLE and Mastery Maths Teacher for the East Midlands East Maths Hub. In this role I have led Maths projects and school improvement with a maths focus in schools across the East Midlands.

    I am married with two children, and a dog. In my spare time I enjoy reading, painting and restoring furniture.

    I am looking forward to welcoming your children to school this September!
