Support Staff

Please see below our support staff for 2016-17.


Mrs Diane Crompton

Mrs D Crompton - Business Manager

I have been at St Margaret’s for 4 years. I started as a volunteer receptionist and was then appointed as school administrator. I have since been employed as School Business Manager and have been in this role for 3 years. I am responsible for the management of the schools Finances, Human Resources, Estates Management and the Health and Safety of staff, pupils and school site. I enjoy working with the ‘St Margaret’s family’ and all our wonderful children and staff.  I have had many varied roles over the years ranging from animal nurse to touring theatre administrator! In my spare time I enjoy walking, especially with my dog. I also love to cook and enjoy reading.

Miss Kirsty Dowden

Ms K Dowden - School Administrator

I started working at St Margaret’s as the School Business Administrator in March 2014. Prior to starting here I worked for Oldham Council on the Human Resources team, providing HR and Recruitment support to Oldham Primary Schools. This is where I developed an interest in education, which led me to apply for this role. The leadership team at St Margaret’s have supported me through my Diploma in School Business Management, which I was pleased to pass in April 2016. I am really proud to be part of the St Margaret’s team and the relationships that my role allows me to build with the families of St Margaret’s.  I live locally with my partner and in my spare time enjoy socialising with friends and travelling to new places!

Ms D Bilton

Ms D Bilton - School Clerk

I started volunteering as a clerical assistant at St Margarets one day a week in 2015. This led to part time employment and I now work in the school office 4 days a week. I am responsible for the front of house reception duties and like to think that I am ‘The friendly face of St Margaret’s’! I really enjoy coming to work here and the fact that no two days are ever the same.  I have a 12 year old son whom attends Oasis Academy. When I am not in work I like to spend time with my family.

Mrs Kirsten Webster

Mrs K Webster - Caretaker and Midday Supervisor

I am employed as a Caretaker at St Margaret’s and also a Midday Supervisor. Before working at St Margaret’s I was employed as a Care Worker and have also spent time taking care of my children and family. I have four sons, three of whom are aged 16 and the youngest is aged 12. I can truly say that I love my job at St Margaret’s and look forward to help making some positive changes within the school and to the school grounds. I would like to involve the children and their ideas as much as possible in my work!

I am employed as a 1:1 Teaching Assistant supporting interventions in Early Years. I originally started at St Margaret’s in 2001 as a Midday Supervisor and then began working as a TA in 2009. I am really proud of the parent/teacher relationships which we have in the Early Years Unit. I find that every day is different and it’s nice to see each child progress.

I have been a Teaching Assistant at St Margarets for 16 years. I have worked under the leadership of three Headteachers. There is a lovely atmosphere here at St Margaret’s and its lovely watching the children grow and flourish.

I am married with two children, who both attended St Margaret’s School!

Mrs Wendy O'Farrell

Mrs O'Farrell

I have been employed at St Margarets for over 10 years supporting SEN children from Reception up to Year 5. I love the challenge of working with children on a 1:1 basis and watching them learn and grow into a valued member of school. I enjoy watching the children change and progress through school life and watching their confidence grow so that they can continue on their journey into secondary school.

I live local to St Margaret’s and am married with a family of my own.
