Meet the Staff

The Staff

We are a very happy and lively staff team, all focused on achieving the same shared vision for the education of the children at Stow-on-the-Wold Primary School. We work well as a team and believe that every staff member has an equal role to play in supporting children to achieve their very best at school. Teachers and teaching partners work closely with the Head/SENCo to plan a rich and memorable curriculum through which children can learn more, remember more and can do more with each passing day. Every staff member has an area of responsibility within our wider curriculum and we all work together to support each other in developing the different subjects, knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning. We liaise very closely with our parents/carers in order develop effective partnership working. We also work closely with other primary schools in the area to enhance the curriculum and develop wider competitive opportunities for the children, including our catchment secondary schools. We employ a specialist Modern Foreign Languages teacher, PE coaches and teachers, along with peripatetic Music teachers.

We are very well supported in school by our amazing administrator, dedicated team of school cleaners, our friendly and knowledgeable cooks and our caring midday supervisors, as well as working closely with colleagues at Stow Community and Family Hub. We employ a parent support advisor Mrs Elizabeth Hamilton who is freely available to help families with confidential advice and practical support. We are also very well supported by our fabulous parents, dedicated PTFA and wider community members who offer us help in so many ways and we work closely with local charities, voluntary groups and the churches in our area to enhance provision.
