I would like all our children to receive an outstanding education in an outstanding school and 
with the help and support of parents, carers, family members and the wider community all
working together with our dedicated teaching team, we hope that we can achieve this.

Headteacher Lynn Small

My name is Lynn Small and I have been at Littleton Green, previously Huntington Primary, since 
January 2000. From 2006 I have been Headteacher. 

I have worked in a number of schools as ICT co-ordinator, Maths 
co-ordinator and co-ordinating teaching assistants and I have taught in every primary year group. 

My role on the governing body is very similar to that in school where I provide strategic direction 
and vision. This means changing all the time to tackle new challenges but keep the children’s
education as my main focus. 

I have 3 beautiful children and much of my spare time is taken up being “Mum’s Taxi”. 
I am a member of a choir which I love as singing brings great joy!

Staff Governor David Baker

My name is David Baker and I am a Governor and Deputy Head at Littleton Green
Community School. Since beginning my teaching career in Sandwell, in 1996, I have worked in a
number of schools but have taught for the last nine years at Littleton Green. 
I have been a Governor here for five years. The governing body performs many vital roles
including checking and challenging performance, shaping the future direction of the school and
representing the views of the wider community. 
I am married with two daughters: one at high school and the other at primary school. In my spare 
time I love reading, walking my dog Poppy and despite the constant feeling of frustration and 
disappointment that goes alongside it watching the mighty West Bromwich Albion Football Club!

Co-opted Governor Christine Nelson

Hello, My name is Christine Nelson and I was co-opted to the board of governors in 2014. 

My family and I moved to Cannock in 2010 so I guess we are still classed as “newcomers” by 
some of the locals. Two years ago I unofficially retired from my job in a bank to help care for my 
two grandchildren, both of whom attend Littleton Green. Since one of them is only in Nursery, 
I expect to be involved with the school for at least another 6 years therefore I have a good reason 
to want to see the school perform well and be well managed.

In my opinion it is the role of us all i.e. staff, Governors, Parents, pupils and all other stakeholders associated with the school to ensure all the children at Littleton Green are given the best primary
education possible and that they leave here well prepared for the next stage of their education. 

Jamie Dorrance
