My name is Dee Taylor and I am the English Learning Manager at the Iffley Academy and class teacher for Kusama class. Before that I was Head of English at Didcot Girls’ School. I am passionate about animals, a voracious reader and adore watching modern dance. I really enjoy travelling and even lived in Africa (doing voluntary work) for a while. Now I live in Abingdon with my husband, Mr White (the SENCO) and our naughty rescue cat, Charlie. Kusama class is named after the famous artist Yayoi Kusama and is part of the Guggenheim gallery where we prioritise a) highly individualised programmes personalised to learning goals (EHCP) b) additional support in forming appropriate friendship c) regular opportunities for the acquisition of independence and life skills (include out of school learning).
