Meet The Teaching Team

Miss Lorna Jackson (Teacher)

Miss Jackson has joined the Saighton family this year having previously worked within an Early Years team at a large school on the Wirral. Miss Jackson is very much looking forward to working with the youngest children in school and overseeing the Early Years Foundation Stage this year. Early years is her passion and she enjoys working with the children to help them develop and grow. She loves nothing more that reading a great story with the children where they can get lost inside a book together. 

She is also a trained Forest School Leader. Outdoor learning is her passion and Miss Jackson can't wait for lots of fun and adventures in the forest!

Outside of school, Miss Jackson enjoys running, mountain walking, skiiing and spending time with family and friends. 


Mrs Daniela Pilliner (Senior EYFS Teaching Assistant)

Mrs Pilliner was the Vice-Chair of the PTA for two years before joining the Saighton School staff in 2014. She was welcomed in to the Early Years Foundation Stage team where she has continued to develop her passion for supporting children with all aspects of life. 

She is a kind, friendly and enthusiastic teaching assistant who really enjoys having a positive impact on children's life and helps pupils make the best use of educational opportunites available to them.

Mrs Pilliner loves the challenge of seing how children achieve something they once thought was impossible and finds this aspect of education especially rewarding.  

Outside of school she enjoys reading, travelling and socialising with friends.

Miss Holding joined the team in Spetember 2018. She has been working within the EYFS for over 3 years and has enjoyed gaining lots of experience.
