Hello, I’m Mrs Devaney and I am the Deputy Head.  I enjoy my role supporting Mrs Sutherland, contributing to the ethos of our school and further developing an exciting and stimulating creative curriculum for all our children. I  came to Alderman Cogan’s in 2002 and have taught in Year 1, Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6. I have been the leader of Literacy for many years and find the teaching and learning of reading and writing fascinating. It is my aim to instil a love of stories, books and language in every child at Alderman Cogan's and enjoy the challenge of achieving this. 

I love helping people of all ages to realise and achieve their dreams. I get such a buzz out of seeing someone I have helped achieve something that they have found challenging. I am passionate about ensuring all children learn and achieve their full potential. I enjoy helping others to do their very best.
