Meet our wonderful team of staff
I am delighted to be the Head Teacher at Aston Rowant C of E Primary School.
I am passionate about creating an exciting and engaging creative curriculum for our children’s academic, personal, social and spiritual development. I am also proud of our commitment to learning outside the classroom using our incredible grounds.
I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead, the RE Co-ordinator, Collective Worship Co-ordinator, PSHE Co-ordinator and SENCO lead. I also teach on a Thursday morning and on Fridays.
I am the school Bursar and Office Manager. I have worked in school settings for 12 years and love the variety that my job entails. I enjoy being creative and enjoy cooking, knitting and sewing when I am not spending time being a taxi service to my four offspring!
I teach our Reception children (Hedgehog Class) on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
I am the lead teacher for Early Years and am also the Music Co-Ordinator. I love teaching early years and I am passionate about developing a sense of awe and wonder at the world around us. In my spare time I love to sing with my band, potter in my garden, and spend time with my church friends and family.

I am delighted to be back teaching at Aston Rowant in Squirrel Class (Years 1 and 2). My passion is for teaching English and French, and I am the lead teacher for both of these subjects. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking, cooking and reading.

I am the subject co-ordinator for Science, Geography and History. I am also the staff Governor for our school.

I love being outside in nature (whatever the weather!), and finding new walks to explore with my two young children.
I joined the school in September 2021 and teach Owl Class (Years 5 and 6) from Monday to Thursday. I can't wait to get stuck into teaching at Aston Rowant, especially the upper school, and hearing their amazing thoughts and answers. I am looking forward to being the P.E. Co-ordinator.

I am delighted to work at Aston Rowant as the SENDCo. SENDCo stands for special educational needs and/or disabilities coordinator. My role is to work with all staff to implement our SEN policy. I also get to work our wonderful students and parents.
