Mrs D Helme

Since qualifying as a teacher over thirty years ago, I have been passionate about quality education and the positive impact it can have. As well as teaching in secondary, primary, EYFS and adult education contexts, I have been involved in research and publishing, focusing on RE and Collective Worship. For the past seven years I have been part of the education team at the Diocese of Gloucester, where my role has included developing the educational offer at Gloucester Cathedral. I am currently the Strategic Lead for RE and School Christian Character.

I am married to Simon, who is a clergyman, and play an active role in church life. I have previously been a parent governor, Vice Chair and Acting Chair at Dursley Primary School. My three young adult children help to keep me grounded and I am a big fan of fell walking and glass fusing.
