Teachers

Mrs E. Davis – Reception
Subject Lead: EYFS /ART

I have worked at Broseley C of E for over 25 years! During that time, many different members of staff have come and gone, but the strong caring ethos of a family has continued throughout, where the children are at the centre of everything we do. I love, and feel privileged to work with the very youngest of children in school. Their sense of wonder, joy and excitement to learn, is infectious making the reception classroom at Broseley C of E a lovely place to be.

Mrs T. Mitchell – Year 1
Subject Lead: RE/ MUSIC

I joined Broseley C of E in 2014 and I can honestly say it’s the place where I regained my love of teacher!!!! I am fortunate enough to be able to speak as a parent and a member of staff when I say the school has friendly welcoming atmosphere with an open door policy… I am a Broseley girl and love living and working in such a close community. I think my knowledge of the community has helped greatly and I love nothing more than rising to the challenge of organising children to attend community events.

I have high expectations of my class and it’s often been said I’m fun, firm but fair, and I’ll take that proudly as I continue to plan rich and varied curriculum to meet the needs of each new class.

Mrs J. Aston – Year 3
Subject Lead: History / Geography

I have worked at Broseley CE School for the whole of my 32 year teaching career. For the majority of this time, I have taught in KS1, but I have also taught in Reception and in Years 3 and 4. I feel very fortunate to work in such a lovely school, where every child is valued for their own unique strengths, talents, interests and personalities.

Miss L. Simpson – Year 3
Deputy Head /SENDCO /PSHE/MFL / RSE /Deputy Safeguarding Lead

I am extremely proud to be part of the amazing team at Broseley CE Primary School. I have been the Deputy Head now for almost eleven years and truly feel part of a wonderful supportive Broseley community. For me, one of the key strengths of our school is the pastoral care of our children. We endeavour to ensure that every pupil feels safe and happy, and can thrive in a supportive and exciting learning environment. As a class teacher, I work hard to make this happen – with very high expectations of learning and behaviour, underpinned with genuine care for my pupils’ well-being and happiness, and I also like to ensure that we have lots of fun at school. I love to be creative; teaching drama and dance classes, as well as overseeing the teaching of music and French in school. You might also find me building a cave in the classroom to provide pupils with somewhere exciting to enjoy their reading!

Mr J. Heath – Year 5
Subject Lead: Maths/PE/Deputy

I started at the school as a teaching assistant and I have been teaching at Broseley since qualifying as an NQT around 16 years ago!

I have never wanted to teach anywhere else, the children, the parents, the community and the town are very close to my heart even though I am not ‘local’.

My passion is sport and I believe that competition is a healthy and important part of growing up. Learning how to lose and win graciously is an invaluable skill for life. Always happy to make a fool out of myself, wear costumes and prance around in a tutu if the occasion calls for it as I believe fun has to be at the heart of learning.

Miss K. Wootton –

I have been working at Broseley for the last 7 years. Those 7 years have been brilliant! Broseley is a fabulous place to work, as the ethos of the school really suits me as a person. We work hard but know how to have fun along the way, which is what I see teaching being about.

I enjoy all areas of the curriculum, in particular maths and science. We are so fortunate to have our own Forest School area and access to the local nature reserve ‘The Haycop’, as I enjoy working outside as much as possible. My hobbies include rock climbing, mountain biking and reading – especially books written for children! All in all, Broseley is a fun, stimulating place to be!

Miss E. Madden – Reception

I have recently joined Broseley C of E Primary School in my 7th year of teaching after being inspired by the school values, FACES. Over the years, I have taught in Reception and Year One as I love nothing more than inspiring our youngest children.

I thoroughly enjoy watching children progress and take charge of their own learning through carefully planned adult led and child initiated sessions which promote curiosity, awe and wonder. I believe the environment plays a big part in children’s development and strive to explore the outdoors as much as possible as well as creating a calm and nurturing environment inside the classroom.

I love performing arts & have performed myself since the age of 4. I believe confidence is the key to success and children’s self-belief is something I aim to instil. I can’t wait to pass on my love of drama, music, art & dance to the children at Broseley C of E and ensure they have as many opportunities to perform as possible.

Mr J. Cowdrill -TEACHER/ Year 6
Subject Lead: Science

I have recently joined Broseley C of E Primary due to hearing about its fantastic reputation and the range of opportunities it offers the children. I have been teaching full-time for 6 years, with many of them spent in year 6, creating a calm, enjoyable environment with high-expectations. I enjoy working in primary schools as there is such a wide curriculum, there’s so much to enjoy to learn – my specialist subjects are Maths, Science and P.E.

I have a natural sporting background, and enjoy playing a range of sports outside of school time. I’ve worked as an outdoor education instructor for a year, I love the adrenaline rush. As well as playing, from the age 16 I have coached football from grassroots upwards. For the past 4 years I have been apart of the management team for Telford and Wrekin U11s District teams. We have consistently got a team to the National Finals.

I hope my range of experiences will be able to inspire, motivate and develop a love for learning for all children at Broseley Primary School.

Miss A. Lovegrove -TEACHER/ Year 2
Subject Lead: Computing

Throughout my teacher training, I was lucky enough to have completed many placements at Broseley C of E School, with one of my final placements in Mrs Mitchell’s year 1 class.

Joining as an NQT has been fantastic, the warm, caring community couldn’t have been more welcoming. The schools approach to learning allows for a broad and balanced curriculum, which is tailored to meet the needs of each class, and child. I am very fortunate to work with colleagues who are extremely experienced, I am excited to ‘pick their brains’ and continue to develop professionally.

I am particularly interested in computing in the primary classroom, with technology advancing so rapidly I believe it is more important than ever to make sure children have an opportunity to delve into different areas of technology.

Miss R. Howell -ASSISTANT HEAD / Year 6 Subject Lead: Literacy/ CURRICULUM LEAD

During my teacher training, I was lucky enough to conduct my final placement at Broseley C of E, in Mrs Aston’s year 2 class – here began my love for the school and the local community who had shown me such support whilst I cared for my sick mother, so when a teaching position was advertised several years later, I jumped at the opportunity to apply and was appointed as a class teacher.

Broseley C of E has always been known for its sporting accolades but I was ambitious to showcase our academic abilities, after all we have an experienced and outstanding staff and extremely talented children, and I believed that we had the capability to become a pioneering school for education; in addition to strengthening our links with parents, grandparents and businesses so that Broseley C of E would not only be part of the community but be at the heart of the community.

I am known as the researcher at school and I love nothing more than to keep up-to-date with anything related to educational progress: the best reading and writing strategies; behaviour management; and the most effective ways to model learning and provide feedback so that the children get the most from their learning; therefore, when I was promoted to senior leadership and Science and Literacy Coordinator I was able to put all my research into practise and with the help of the staff and collaboration with Mr Aiston, was able to implement the best evidence-based strategies to ensure that all our children could receive the best education possible.

I believe that education is ever evolving and I am privileged to work in such a forward-thinking school with a leadership team who have faith in its staff to develop initiatives, and a team capable and brave enough to deliver them.

I’m still as passionate about teaching now as I was on my very first placement and I’m excited to see how we can further develop our curriculum to ensure our children have choices and opportunities far beyond what they could ever imagine.

Miss C. Thomas- Year 4

I have been a teacher for 4 years and those years have been spent in Year 5 and 6. I am really excited to begin my teaching journey at Broseley in Year 4. Within my classroom I like to create an environment with high expectations but also one where we can have a lot of fun and laughs together. One of my main passions is reading and over the years I have amassed a wide variety of books that I love to share with my class. I hope that I can pass on my love of reading to the children.

I am also currently studying for a Master’s degree in education and will be undertaking my dissertation this year. I will be focusing on gender stereotyping and how teachers are an integral part of challenging these stereotypes. I think that keeping on top of current research is really important and allows me to keep learning and implementing new ideas in my classroom.
