Mr D Gallagher

Teacher (Wrens)

My interests: The two most important people in my life are my Son, Arthur, and my wife, Sam. I love spending time with them both: we enjoy singing, dancing and going out together. I enjoy watching football and I love listening to music and watching comedy. I try to go and see a musician or comedian live as often as I can. I have just entered my 4th year of teaching at Meadow and thoroughly enjoy it!

A fun fact about me: I can say the whole alphabet backwards in under 10 seconds!

Mrs M Jackson

My interests: I love going for walks with my husband and little girl. I have recently started horse riding again after many years away from it. I enjoy running and I am looking forward to completing my second half marathon next year.

A fun fact about me: Ducks are one of my favourite animal and I have shared a flat with a baby duckling while I was at University!

Miss A Brown

My Interests: I’ve worked with children for over 20 years. From working in nurseries to running kids clubs abroad for Thomas Cook. For the last 10 years I’ve been working at Meadow in Dolphin club and and as a 1-2-1 teaching assistant.

I live with my Gramps, a chihuahua called Joey and 3 rescue chickens Betty, June and Pearl.


Fun fact about me: I’ve been white water rafting and swam with dolphins

3 times.


Mrs L Sparks

Teaching Assistant (Wrens/ Robins)

My interests: Over the years lots of my interests have come from following my children's sporting activities. My son has played football from a very young age and I have 100% been that football Mum on the sidelines shouting off side!! My daughter was a keen gymnast and dancer and I have spent years travelling around the country watching her compete in gym comps. So much of my life has been spent putting everything into my family and making special memories for us to treasure.


Now my children have become young adults I have found myself enjoying walks with my husband and up until recently eating out. I have a love for King Charles spaniels and love our dog Marni.


As a young adult myself I used to love to keep fit. I was part of a running club and loved to play netball. I am planning to take up some of these interests again in the future.


A fun fact about me: My daughter and I made it on to TV in the audition section of Dance Mom's UK (I was not auditioning). We got to meet Jenifer Ellison and the rest of the crew.


Mrs J White

Teaching Assistant (Robins/ Robins)

My interests: I love to spend my spare time with my 3 children Millie, Peter and Teddy. The two eldest are now in high school and Teddy currently attends Meadow and is very happy. I love to go and watch mine and my boys favourite team Manchester United. I have been a TA for just over a year, Meadow being my first job and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love to watch the children learn and grow and building special relationships with them all.

Fun fact: from the age of 5 I had a pony called “Zoe” together we won lots of gymkhanas, we were the best team and the best of friends
