Fiona has been with the Kedleston Group since 2013 starting as a bank worker. In September 2018 Fiona chose to leave her main job as a teaching assistant at a local school and join the team at Wood Grove on a permanent basis. This commitment mirrors that of her work with the young people and within the staffing team, now as a designated keyworker to one of our YP, Fiona’s ability to inspire has stood out.
Since joining the company earlier in the year David has impressed with his commitment and ability and has become a vital support to Chris and the schools. David has been key in identifying areas of improvement within our settings and he has backed this up by providing support to groups and individuals to ensure that the H&S of our staff and children is safeguarded and promoted. David has worked particularly hard in establishing good and positive relations in all schools and homes, He has been singled out for praise by managers on several occasions for the personal and professional way he provides support. He has and continues to uphold the standards set out by his professional body as well as the goals and vison of the company. Recently he has also taken on additional responsibility outside of his normal duties including being the H&S lead in two recent Ofsted inspections during a period when Chris is not able to be in the schools as much as normal. A credit to the company and valued employee.
