Leadership Team

From January 2020, together with Woodbury C of E VA Primary School, we are part of Cedar Tree Federation.


Our leadership team structure is shown below.


Our Head of School, Mel Johns will take overall responsibility for the day to day operational running of the school. Sian Lane, becomes our Executive Headteacher, responsible for Headteacher leadership across the Federation. Rachel Hingston, our School Business Manager will lead non teaching operations across the Federation, working closely with the Heads of School at Pinhoe and Woodbury, the Executive Headteacher and both school office teams. Our newly appointed inclusion lead, Hannah Chamings, will be SENCo at Pinhoe and lead inclusion across the Federation. 


This is an exciting and significant stage in our school journey as we become Cedar Tree Federation. For more information please visit the Federation section on our website, which is dedicated to providing more information about this change in our school structure.
