Our Staff

Our staff have wide-ranging experience and backgrounds, but all are united in their dedication to supporting our children to thrive. 

All of us, whether we are teaching directly or working 'behind the scenes' want the very best for our children and support each other to achieve this. 

Senior Leadership Team

Our Leadership Team work across the Federation and have key areas of responsibility linked to the Federation Improvement Plan.


Executive Headteacher


Mrs Oriana Dalton



First and foremost, I am a teacher and a learner.  I began my teaching career before Google (BG) and still have the same passion and enthusiasm for teaching and learning as I did then.

I am proud to lead the team at the Federation. 

I have had the privilege of being a school leader for the last 20 years and in several different authorities.  In my spare time, I am seconded to work with the Cambridgeshire School Improvement Team as a Primary Adviser. 

I am passionate about ensuring that children have access to high quality teaching, learning and support to ensure they become successful citizens of the future.


Head of School for Fawcett

Mrs Jemma Calverley


I started my career in a small village primary school just outside of Cambridge, where my passion for teaching and learning was ignited. After several years there, I moved to join Fawcett Primary School. I have worked in both schools at the Federation and have been part of the growth and development of the Trumpington Federation.  

I am also a mum. I have two school aged children, who keep me very busy! I love being outside and whenever I can, I go to the allotment where I enjoy growing vegetables and flowers. 


Head of School for Trumpington Meadows

Mr Ollie Monro

Having studied at Cambridge and Warwick, I joined the Federation in 2014, firstly in Year 4 at Fawcett before moving to Trumpington Meadows to become the Year 6 teacher, where I braved the high ropes on the residential trip and learned to love semi-colons!  As part of my wider responsibilities at the Federation, I have led Maths and Key Stage 2 and have thoroughly enjoyed working with children and staff at both schools; I also served on the governing body for four years.  Outside of school, I can often be found with my nose in a history book or searching local shops for extra ties to add to my ever-growing collection!



Assistant Headteacher

Mrs Clare Wilkinson

I have been working at The Federation for 18 exciting years. I have taken on numerous different roles , including teaching in Early Years, being Assistant Head Teacher and setting up and managing the Children's Centre.   

I have a passion for seeing young children develop and grow in a caring, nurturing environment. Every new academic year, I love getting to know all the unique personalities of the little ones walking through our doors. I also enjoy working alongside their families to ensure each child has a positive journey with us.   

In my spare time I relax by running in the countryside, seeing friends and going on adventures with my family.  


Assistant Headteacher

Miss Katie Fisher


I have worked at Fawcett since 2010 years across most of the year groups within KS2. It is safe to say that Fawcett is my first love, closely followed by science and then cheese! As a teacher, it has been an enormous privilege and source of enjoyment to guide and support children through their learning journey. As a subject leader and phase leader, I have relished the opportunity to share my passion for science with colleagues. When I am not thinking about school, my mind’s focus lies with my menagerie; I have two ducks, two cats and two guinea pigs. I also love to source and eat very stinky cheeses!


Assistant Headteacher

Mrs Clayton-Smith

I joined the Federation following a move from Cornwall where I grew up and qualified as a teacher in 2013. Throughout my career so far, I have gained experience working in a number of schools, led various subjects and taught children from Early Years to Year 6! I am particularly passionate about primary English and have done lots in our schools to raise the profile of reading and promote reading for pleasure. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring new places, cooking, going to the gym and listening to podcasts.
