Albert Pye Primary

Meet our Fab Staff!

Mrs BradfordMrs S. Bradford – Headteacher

Mrs Bradford is our head teacher and is an excellent supply teacher when a teacher’s away. She is really fun and exciting, she makes decisions and organises some of the events in school. She also organises our Special Achievers assemblies to show that some people have worked a bit harder than others. Mrs Bradford loves fish fingers and crosswords, and enjoys spending time with her son George and learning about dinosaurs with him.

Miss StannardMiss D. Stannard – Deputy Head

Miss Stannard teaches Year 4 and 5 in the class called “Kingfishers”.  She runs a netball club after school and her favourite lessons are drama and English. She is the deputy headteacher and gets along very well with the other teachers. She has very high expectations for her class. Miss Stannard likes to take charge of the Christmas plays and makes sure everyone gets a part. She is not the best at drawing as she can only draw Fred Blogs – a silly cartoon character!  Miss Stannard has blonde wavy hair, which she constantly sprays with hairspray! She absolutely loves chocolate and Gary Lineker! Her favourite football team is Ipswich.

Class Teachers

Miss ClarkeMrs G. Davis – Squirrels (on maternity leave)

Mrs Davis is nice and friendly and she helps us with our work.  She smiles a lot and gives us lots of stickers.  It makes her happy when we learn new things and when we are kind to our friends. She really likes maths and can count to a really big number.  When she is at home she does lots of yummy cooking and baking and goes for walks.  She talks to her cat Lily, too.

Mrs ClarkeMrs N. Clarke – Hedgehogs

Mrs Clarke teaches Year one and Reception children on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and her classroom is near the end of the school. She uses sign language to help the younger children learn. Mrs Clarke runs a cross country club and a colouring club. She encourages the children to work their hardest and rewards them with praise and stickers. Her speciality is teaching the children to sing as singing is her favourite part of the school day. Button the Tortoise comes to school with her to help the children learn.

Miss WillerMiss T. Willer – Woodpeckers

Miss Willer is an excellent teacher and is really nice. She used to teach Hedgehogs on Monday and Tuesday, Squirrels on Wednesday and Foxes on Thursday and Friday, but now she spends all her time with the Woodpeckers. She always wears nice necklaces, jewellery and glasses. Doing P.E. with Miss Willer is lots of fun when we run about and practise skills.   Sometimes she lets us play, but only if we work hard.  Miss Willer runs our choir and they sing all around Diss and Roydon.

Mrs WalshMrs K. Walsh – Foxes

Mrs Walsh is a really fun and kind teacher, and her favourite subject is science. She has a dog called Cheddar and he loves cheese and crackers. Mrs Walsh has three children called Dylan, Megan and Sam. Her favourite colour is green and her favourite foods are spaghetti, strawberries and Maltesers. She also likes the band Coldplay.

Mrs CampbellMrs C. Campbell – Badgers

Mrs Campbell is a fun teacher because she works very hard to make us learn. She sings and draws beautifully, and she wants us to be quiet in Guided Reading. She asks us questions and explains everything, and sings funny songs, and I like being animals in P.E. Her hair is beautiful as it’s curly and her favourite colour is pink. When she is not at school she likes swimming and Zumba, and looking after her dog and cat. She has a son, and a daughter who is a teacher.

Mrs C. Birkinshaw – Hedgehogs (and Foxes on Wednesdays)

Mrs Birkinshaw is the best teacher in the world and she likes teaching English and she likes teaching art because she is good at it.  She has a daughter called Amelie and they do arts and crafts and cooking together.  She enjoys taking her dog Peppa for walks.  Mrs Birkinshaw loves going on holiday to Italy and talking to her friends and family on the phone.  She always wears lovely, pretty dresses and she is FANTASTIC!

Miss S. Vale – Rabbits

Miss Vale used to come to Roydon Primary School when she was young and now she has come back to teach us what she learned!  She is a very nice and wonderful teacher and it is fun being in her class.  She is a really good artist and made a spitfire for our classroom display about World War 2.  When she is not at school she likes camping and kayaking, and taking her dogs for walks.

Miss PhillipsMrs A. Bennett – Owls

Mrs Bennett teaches Year 5s and 6s in Owls on Thursdays and Fridays as she likes working with them. She used to run the choir club at lunchtimes for anyone who is interested in doing it, but then she had a baby. Mrs Bennett likes playing the piano, making arts and crafts and going to the cinema to watch films. She is a lovely teacher and she makes everyone laugh and giggle and the children really like her.

Mr SantyMr J. Santy – Otters

Mr Santy teaches Year 5 and 6 and runs Football Club after school – it’s very fun. There are not many men who work at Roydon Primary, but they don’t mind because they get their own toilet. Mr Santy usually wears a shirt with a tie and has a ginger beard and brown hair. He likes using iPads and supports Ipswich Town FC, so enjoys having a chat with Miss Stannard about Ipswich. When he isn’t teaching at school he listens to music and likes to watch cricket. Mr Santy is kind, friendly and funny but when you’re a bit naughty he can be a bit strict.

Miss LeftleyMiss J. Leftley – Junior Set Teacher

Miss Leftley is an amazing recorder teacher and player and also a fantastic mathematician. One of her greatest hobbies is playing the piano in assembly but she also teaches us all of the school play songs. Also she is a Norwich supporter and she had her room coloured yellow and green.

Higher Level Teaching Assistants

Mrs Mills is a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. She has brown hair and she wears glasses for reading. She helps the Reception and Year 1 children in Woodpeckers and Hedgehogs in the mornings, and she teaches lots of different lessons in the afternoons. She is good at drawing. When she is at her house she likes cooking, reading magazines and catching up on sleep, and she takes her dog for walks. She is a vegetarian, and is kind and lovely.

Mrs L. Collis

Mrs Collis helps us with our reading, she helps us learn and encourages us.  She is a great HLTA for this school.  She is brilliant at maths and knows everything!  She works with the Year 5 and 6 children in the mornings, and then teaches in lots of different classes in the afternoons.  Mrs Collis is very helpful to everyone in school.  She likes taking her dog for walks, even in the rain, and she is in a quiz team that knows a lot and wins lots of quizzes.

Mrs D. Jolly

Mrs Jolly was a teaching assistant and now she is a HLTA who works with Badgers and Squirrels and everyone else.  She is really good at art so she gets on well with Ms Holden.  When she is not at school she does lots of things with her three sons and she has a wet suit so she can go body boarding.  She plays bowls because her mum and dad played for England, but she isn’t very good at it.
