Mrs M Laidler, Class 2

My association with Oldway School began in the 1970s, when I attended as a pupil. 


I have now been teaching for nearly 29 years, beginning my teaching career at Oldway Primary School in 1988.  When I started here, the school looked very different and I have seen many changes over the years.  Most of my teaching has been in year 6, although I have also taught across Key Stage 2.  At various times I have been subject leader for: science, history, and RE, although currently I have responsibility for geography across the school. 


I live in Torquay with my husband, Tony.  Our two children, who both attended Oldway School, are grown up – one is in full time employment and the other is at university. In my time away from the classroom I enjoy being with my family. As a family we enjoy going to the theatre, eating out and travelling abroad.  I have a particular passion for books and reading (when I have the time) and walking our two spaniels.
