School Support Staff
Mrs T Roe - School Business Manager
My name is Tracey Roe and I joined St Kenelm's in November 2015 as the School's Business Manager. I hold an MBA and am a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). My role is very varied - I can be found working on the school's finances, ensuring Health and Safety compliance, and assisting with an HR matter often all in one day. I am also a School Governor. I am very much enjoying working at St Kenelm's; the school has a very friendly atmosphere and the staff and children are great to work with.
I live locally to school with my husband and our two children, and can often be found walking our dog in the nearby countryside.

The staff, parents and children alike at St. Kenelm’s have made me feel very welcome and are a pleasure to work with. Every day brings a new challenge which I love as I enjoy being busy!

It’s my responsibility to ensure the children have lots of fun, exercise and fresh air, as well as supervising and dealing with any injury / accidents which may occur.
