The Rainbow Centre

Mrs L Matthews

Hello, I am one of the Lead Teachers of the Rainbow Centre here at the Dedworth Campus and I am thoroughly looking forward to leading and developing the Centre to meet the ever changing needs of our learners.  I have taught in a range of settings across the country and have a background in SEND and Schools Leadership.

When I am not in school I love spending time with my family, going shopping or taking time out at the spa when I have chance! 

I am looking forward to working with the children in my new role and look forward to leading the Rainbow Centre here at the heart of the Dedworth Campus.


Mrs H Mitchell

Hello, I’m Mrs Mitchell and I am delighted to have a new role within Dedworth Middle School. You will now find me in The Rainbow Centre as one of the lead teachers. Some may say I’m crazy for still being here after 14 years, but I absolutely love the school and am passionate about creating an environment that allows all our children to flourish and feel safe.

When I am not in school, I am kept busy by my two young daughters and I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, going for walks and watching films (when I get a chance). I also love sewing, crochet, Disney and reading.

I am really excited about my new role and to be working with the children in The Rainbow Centre and supporting the wider Dedworth Campus.


Mrs K Heffer

Hi, I'm Mrs Heffer and I am very excited to join the team at The Rainbow Centre as an SEN teacher. I have 15 years of teaching experience in a variety of schools, and have already had the privilege of meeting some of the children and staff at Dedworth Green First School through my involvement with the charity "ABC to Read".

I enjoy long walks and trips to the seaside with my husband, two children and very excitable dog. I am also currently enjoying the challenge of learning Spanish so hope to be visiting a Spanish speaking country soon to put it to the test! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the children in The Rainbow Centre and look forward to becoming part of the friendly community at the Dedworth campus.
