Allison Tatton – Head of Early Childhood Education and Care
I have worked a Newman for nearly 17 years but before taking on this role, I worked as a Primary School Teacher in and around the Birmingham area, mainly in early years and before that, I worked in banking for 13 years.
I have two children, both of whom are now pretty much grown up, but both have been through the university experience so i know how important it is for you to have a positive experience while studying at Newman.
My PHD from the University of Bristol looked at Families who foster and I’ve also done research into children’s physical activity levels in the early years and how the early years workforce is changing.
In my spare time, I enjoy holidaying abroad (pre-pandemic), going on walks, cooking and spending time with my family.
