Senior Leadership Team

Anna Sutherland, Head Teacher

Anna Sutherland

Head Teacher

Hi! I have been Headteacher at St Anne's since September 2017 but have been at the school since 2010, firstly as Reading Recovery teacher and SENDCo and then as Deputy Headteacher and nurture lead. Before teaching in Bristol I taught in the Early Years in both London and Manchester. I have also had jobs in a department store, a high street bank and teaching English in Hanoi, Vietnam and Dublin. I love travelling and have been to lots of different countries including Argentina, Russia, UAE and Thailand. I live with my husband Mike who is a gardener and my daughter Maiya who is at primary school. When I'm not at work, I love reading, exploring the city, eating out and spending time relaxing and laughing with friends!


Jo Moss

Deputy Head Teacher - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo)

Hello!  I am Jo Moss. I have wanted to be a teacher from a really young age.  I have taught at St Anne’s Infants since 2002.  Prior to this I was at Ilminster Avenue Specialist Nursery.  During my teaching career I have taught in both Nursery and Reception – Early years being my specialism.   I have been SENCo for the majority of my teaching life and this is a role I am passionate about.  I love supporting children with an additional need and finding ways to ensure all children's needs are met.  I have been one of the Deputy Head teachers here since September 2017.  This role has enabled me to play a key role as part of the Senior Leadership role and I am thoroughly enjoying it.  I am married and have 2 children of my own – Henry and Annabelle.  We love going on holidays and spending quality time together as a family.  Eating out and reading are two of my favourite hobbies!


Rae Fillingham

Deputy Head Teacher - Teaching, Learning and Assessment Lead

Hello! I joined St. Anne’s Infants' School as a supply teacher in September 2006 and never left!  When I graduated from university, I taught for a couple of years before a change of career took me into the world of recruitment.  I always knew that I would return to education one day and I did! Refreshing and updating my skills at UWE, I found myself happily back in the classroom and the rest is history!  I am married to Ash and have two wonderful daughters, Daisy and Phoebe.  In my spare time, I love to listen to audio-books whilst going for walks and I also enjoy pottering in my garden.


Emily Robertson

Early Years Foundation Stage Lead

Hello, I am Miss Robertson and I joined the St Anne’s team in September 2018 following a move back to the South West.  Prior to this I worked for 3 years at a school in Kent in both Reception and Nursery classes. I am passionate about Early Years education and love being witness to the huge amounts of progress that children make in these years.  In my free time, I enjoy singing and playing the piano. I enjoy trips to the theatre and try to see musicals whenever I can.


Sharon Riddell, School Busines Manager

Sharon Riddell

School Business Manager

I have worked at St Anne’s Infants' since 2010. My two children, Noah and Tilly attended St Anne’s and both loved every minute of it. I started my career in catering travelling and working in Australia, Israel, Greece and in a French ski chalet before settling down back home in Bristol. I fell into my role by chance after a stint in office management and recruitment and soon realised that my passion was in education and that this was the most rewarding job I had ever done. I think my role is the most varied and fun in the school, one minute I can be balancing the challenging budget, the next fixing a toilet, building a den and then comforting a child. I could go on! Weekends and holidays are enjoyed listening to live music, cooking and reading.
