Our Staff

Mr Riggs

Executive Headteacher 

& Designated Safeguarding Lead

My journey at St Martin's started in 2017 as a teacher, and leader of English across the Trust. In September 2019, I moved to Braddock to take up the role as Head of School, and became the Executive Headteacher of both schools in July 2022.

My favourite thing about my job is the interactions I am so lucky to have every day with children and staff at our school and our wider community. I feel so blessed and priviledged to work with such a fantastic team and such a supportive school community.
