Pastoral Team


Mr E O’Donnell

I am the Pastoral leader at Dedworth Middle School. I teach History and Geography to Year 7 and 8 pupils. I mainly teach my lessons in Jubilee 1. When I can I like to watch the school sports teams and referee Football matches.

At lunchtimes and breaktimes I can be found in the PLC or on the playgrounds. I am more than happy for you to come and find me if you have a problem or a worry.

When I’m not at school I enjoy playing golf, watching a wide range of sports and spending time with my family.

I’m looking forward to welcoming all pupils back to school and meeting all of the new Year 5 starters.



Mrs H Mitchell

I am currently on maternity leave after having my second daughter who is a ‘lockdown’ baby. I will be returning in March 2021. When I am in school I am the SENDCo, I have been in the position for two years and previous to that I was a Year 5 teacher at DMS.

When I am not in school I have my hands full with my 3 year old and 6 month old. I also love sewing, my current project is a quilted blanket; crochet, currently making a rainbow blanket that has been ongoing for about three years (a very slow project) and I enjoy Pilates.

I look forward to seeing you all when I return.



Mrs E Pearson

I am the SENDCo at Dedworth Middle school. As a SENDCo I look after all the children who have any specific educational needs and offer advice and support in the classroom as well as to parents. When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my husband, our 2 Children, Jonas who is in Year 9 and Tula-Grace who is in Year 5 and our dog Ivy who is training to be a therapy dog. As we live in the country, we love to go on long walks together and have enjoyed exploring more over lockdown



Mrs C Farago

I work in the Nurture Hub across all year groups helping children who may need support with their emotional and social wellbeing.
I also help run our break and lunchtime Q club for some of our more vulnerable students who need a quiet place to be away from the noise of the playground.
As a French speaker I have supported the French department by working with small groups of pupils to assist with language learning.
In my free time I enjoy long walks with my Dalmatian Skye, riding horses and singing in the chorus of Windsor and Eton Opera.
I am really looking forward to seeing everyone back in school again.


Ms E Jerrard

I work in our Pastoral Team as the PLC Manager. We are lucky to have a Personal Learning Centre (PLC) at DMS and this is where you can usually find me! We do group and 1:1 behaviour mentoring when our children need it, do an on-call service for our classrooms, mindfulness, anger management, sessions for self-esteem and mental health, sports mentoring and generally working together with our  children and families to help you all be happy at school! Outside school I do some Personal Training with women who want to get fit, I love cooking and I have 2 children and 2 dogs. I am really lucky too because I love my job!


Mrs J Windsor

Hello and a wonderful welcome to Dedworth Middle!

My name is Mrs Windsor and I help run the Hub here at DMS with Mrs Farago.

Myself and Mrs Farago are part of The Nurture team who are here to help and support you during your time with us at DMS. We mostly work with children I. Either a group or a 1:1 setting to help you with any issues or needs you might have. We also run a lunch and break time club called ‘Q Club’ where you can come and talk or take part in quiet art activities or read. 

We have a wonderful pastoral team and we look forward to getting to know you better.

A little bit about me: I am married to a Firefighter which can be exciting, I have two lovely children and a very cheeky dog who likes to chase squirrels! My hobbies are mostly art and crafts but I also love anything to do with nature, animals and looking after our amazing planet!

Please come and say hello either in the playground, the corridor or over in the Hub (downstairs in the new block).

I know you will love being part of our wonderful DMS community as much as we do :)



Mr S Donnelly

I currently work in the PLC (Pupil Learning Centre) but also have many other responsibilities around school and I enjoy the challenge of every day being different. I joined Dedworth Middle School not too long ago but due to my role at the school I feel like I have got to know so many children already, and hope that they feel as though they know me too. Working with children on a one-to-one basis outside of the classroom enables me to encourage them to recognise their strengths and that is something that I aim to achieve each day with all the children I come across. As well as this, I am also a fan of many different sports and play football (semi-professionally). If anyone ever fancies a chat about anything sporty, I’m your guy! You can usually find me on the playground at break times and lunch times.
