Lunchtime Team

Helen Smith
I work as a Lunchtime Support Assistant and do voluntary work in the school. I am also a parent governor. I have two children who have both attended Oakfield.



Tina Borrow

I am a mum to 4 children, I have worked as a dinner lady for 4 and a half years and love my job.  I have a grand-daughter who is nearly 3. I enjoy going out for days to the beach with my family and going out for meals.

Helen Lyons

After staying on at school completing a Secretarial Course, I became an Office Junior for a company in Swanley in 1988 (where I meet my husband). Then I got promoted as a Computer Operator in the Data Processing Dept, until I left in 2001 to become a full-time mum.  During that time, I have done volunteering work at Oakfield Children’s Centre for 4 years, before coming to Oakfield to Volunteer in the Nursery.  I am currently a Midday Meals Supervisor in the canteen, and recently took the role as Facilities Assistant helping with the Site Team.

Gina Lawler

I work at two of our schools within The Galaxy Trust, I am a Midday Meals Supervisor at Oakfield Primary Academy, and an Extended Services Assistant at West Hill Primary Academy. I started working for the Trust in April 2017, after leaving my role as a Senior Legal PA, at a London Law Firm.

I have a little boy who attends West Hill Primary Academy and in my spare time I love to spend time with him, my family and my friends, as well as spending time studying to obtain my Supporting Teaching and Learning Level 3.

Clare Read

In September 2020 I joined Oakfield as a midday meals supervisor.

I am a mum to three children and two of them currently attend Oakfield.  I previously worked in various Legal secretarial roles and most recently I was a registered childminder before taking a break from work and being a full-time mum.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family.  As a family we love the outdoors and enjoy visiting country parks, local parks and English Heritage sites.
