Mrs Amanda Somerwill – Executive Headteacher at Kenton Primary School

 

Hello Everyone! I am the Executive Headteacher for both Kenn and Kenton Primary Schools. This means that I help both schools with making teaching and learning as great as it can possibly be.

I have taught most of the year groups across the primary school age range. I particularly enjoy teaching reading, writing, art and design technology. I have also specialised in supporting children with additional educational needs. Basically I really enjoy seeing all children love learning and make good progress.

In my spare time I love singing in a choir and doing lots of art and craft activities. I also love being with my family and my cats.

Hello! I am the head of Teaching and Learning and Oak Class teacher. This means that I teach the Year 3s and 4s, as well as spending time helping the whole school with making teaching and learning as great as it can possibly be.

I teach many subjects, and especially love teaching English and Maths. I play the guitar and occasionally have a sing song with the class!

I love playing football and cycling at the weekends.

I’m Mrs Crossley-May and I teach the oldest children in school (years 5 and 6) in Chestnut class for half of the week. I especially love teaching English including reading, writing and SPAG and I also enjoy Maths. When I’m not teaching, I love spending time with my family, going to the beach, reading books and having cuddles with my cat Saph.

Hello, I’m Mrs Slater, one of the Y5/6 teachers. I have taught all year groups but have been teaching Y5/6 for many years now. My favourite subjects to teach are P.E, maths and R.E. I lead R.E. across both Kenn and Kenton schools. I spend my free time scuba diving; swimming in the sea; kayaking; walking my dog and visiting my three, grown up children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr Jon Ball -Class Teacher

Hello everyone, I teach Willow class on Tuesday afternoon and Cherry class on Friday afternoon.

I work at Teignmouth Community School Mill Lane the rest of the time. This is another primary school that is part of the Osprey Learning Trust. While there I teach Outdoor Learning to all of the children, from Reception up to year 6. I’ve been a class teacher for many years and have taught all ages in the classroom too.

I live in Kenton and both of my children have attended Kenton School – my daughter is still there, in Oak class. I play the guitar and like singing with the children I teach.  At the weekend I like to be with my children and if I get any spare time I like surfing, climbing and other outdoor activities.
