Office and Administration Staff Profiles

Mrs L. Haywood – Office Manager

Hello, I’m Mrs Haywood. I have supported Richard Clarke for the past 10 years. I first started as a parent helper when my older son started school in Reception. I progressed through different classes and eventually attained my Teaching Assistant qualification and covered Maternity Leave in Year 3.

Knowing I had a background as a Human Resources Manager, the Headteacher asked if I would cover a vacancy in the School Office until a replacement was found. I discovered I loved the role and the rest is history!! I have been Office Manager since 2008, looking after the children, parents and teachers alike!

Spare time is a rarity as I have two extremely sporty boys and an energetic Wirehaired Vizsla dog.

Mrs J. Lowther – Finance Support Assistant

Hi, I’m Mrs Lowther, I have been part of the team at Richard Clarke for the last couple of years and before that helped out as a volunteer as both of my children attended the school.

My background is in logistics for international building manufacturers but following redundancy decided to take time out and be more available for my family.  I absolutely love being part of this school and offering support to the staff team, children and families.

My spare time is spent supporting my children in their many sporting and performing arts activities and of course meeting with friends, family and relaxing.
