Deputy Head Teacher
Ms C Caddell
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Hello. My name is Claire Caddell.
I am Meadow's Deputy Head.
I have worked at Meadow for the last five years. I originally joined Meadow as an Assistant Head with responsibility for new pupils transitioning into Meadow from others schools. As part of this role I was responsible for Year 7 classes and all the students in the Thematic Department across the school. Prior to joining Meadow I was a teacher at Hedgewood School for over 22 years and was a member of the Leadership team of Hedgewood School for many years. I completed a Masters in Education just prior to joining Meadow and have been teaching for over 31 years in a range of mainly SEN schools. I love working with, and for, our students and can't think of a job I would rather do.
I love cooking and animals but don't like to mix the two!! I also love making and fixing things and like spending my holidays on DIY projects at home.
I took up the Role of Deputy Head in February 2018.
