Dee Raynor is the headteacher at St. Mary’s RC Primary School, a one-form entry school in the parish of St Ambrose Barlow, Greater Manchester. The school also boasts a full time nursery, and caters for over 230 pupils across both the nursery and school.

Career Overview

Dee first joined St Mary’s in 2001 as deputy head, taking the reins as headteacher in 2009 upon the retirement of her predecessor. Between 2005 and 2008, the school had been judged by Ofsted to be a “good” education provider.

With Dee as deputy, the school implemented numerous changes in pursuit of “outstanding” status, including the establishment of a permanent and dedicated senior leadership team. It achieved the outstanding outcome in its 2008 Ofsted inspection.

Since Dee has been head, the school has consolidated its standing, with an RE inspection in 2018 returning an “outstanding” judgement.
