Who's Who


Ms B Townend-Jowitt   

I have been a teacher since 1992, working in Yorkshire, Gloucestershire and now at Kingham. I am passionate about education, ensuring all pupils are provided with teaching and a curriculum that matches their needs and ensures they reach their full potential. Celebrating the whole child is one of my core values, meaning children are valued as individuals and do not become only a statistic. My main aim is to uphold the vision of Kingham Primary school whilst balancing the need for high academic standards and good teaching and learning across all phases of school.







 Assistant Headteacher

Miss K Smith

Teaching has always been a passion and true vocation; and I believe inspiring minds, innovating change and helping every child be the best they can be - still makes it the best job in the world! Throughout my teaching career I have taught all years groups, coordinated numerous subjects, led whole school initiatives, a Key Stage, and developed our Schools Creative Curriculum  - another passion of mine, and fundamental to the ethos of our school. As Assistant Head and as our Year 6 class teacher; my aim is to support and maintain the high expectations and standards we have of the children in our care, and the committed team that drive the 'Outstanding' school we are, and continually strive to be.

SEND Co and Educational Visits

Mrs R Adams

I qualified as a teacher in 1996, and have had a varied teaching experience. I have taught in an international school in Singapore, various schools in Bristol as a supply teacher, in an inner city middle school and in a 5-18 private school. I have now settled in my home county of Oxfordshire supporting the teaching of children with SEND. This is a thoroughly rewarding role, seeing the children grow in confidence and independence, and developing the skills to succeed.






Headteacher: Ms B Townend-Jowitt





I qualified with a PGCE from Manchester longer ago than I care to mention.

I have taught in every year group (including nursery) in various schools in Yorkshire and Gloucestershire.

My favourite subject is maths and I am passionate about the teaching and learning of this core subject ensuring pupils develop a love of maths and are able to reason and articulate their learning and understanding. As assessment lead I aim to ensure pupils know what they do well and how they can improve their learning through high quality marking and feedback which ensures they make good progress.

Miss E Jenkinson (nursery)

I qualified as a teacher in 2004 after completing a PGCE Primary 3-7 years at the University of Gloucestershire. Since then I have taught across the infant range before joining the Kingham team in 2014. Through a bright, cheerful and well organised learning environment I aim to develop resilient and independent learners who love coming to school in their Reception year. Having completed a degree in Sports Science and Management at Loughborough University before coming into teaching I am also passionate about the benefits sport and physical activity can have on even our youngest pupils. When I'm not at school I crochet, jigsaw puzzle, take part in amateur dramatics and love to travel!

 Mrs N Clarke (Weds/ Thurs / Fri)

I completed my Primary P.G.C.E. at Sheffield Hallam University in 2004 and have taught within both year one and two classrooms full time until taking time out to have my children.  I have since taken on the role of supply teacher giving me experience teaching all classes from EYFS to Y6, before joining Kingham in 2017.  My aim is for children to enjoy their learning in an environment that is lively and stimulating, building upon their individual strengths through a variety of creative learning approaches.  During my spare time, I am kept busy with my three children and love spending time with them pursuing their hobbies, visiting places of interest and being creative with my cooking.

 Miss K Smith

I love teaching and learning - full stop. I graduated with Dance, English and a QTS degree, and although initially specialising in KS1, my career has spanned all year groups, three schools, a fair few years and wrinkles! Despite having a soft-spot for Maths, English and anything competitive - I don't have a favourite subject: I love them all! What I thrive on is the process of discovery, designing a curriculum that is owned by the children; facilitated by me, and making connections that truly embed what we learn and drive success. My philosophy is simply: 'Have a go - you CAN do it!; and ensuring our days are fun, innovative and full of laughter! Aside form my genuine love of learning, I love exercise and my two Springer Spaniels, Stan and Ollie, who are perfect partners when I'm running in woods, walking on the beach, or collapsing on the sofa with!


Mrs E Mahony

Whilst not yet 'part of the furniture', my connection with Kingham Primary School spans 19 years. My three sons have all attended the school and have benefitted  from the nurturing learning environment that Kingham provides. After 17 years in finance, I realised that my interests and skills were more suited to enthusing new generations of learners, both as a TA then as a teacher  qualifying from Oxford Brookes in 2010. Having taught in Y2, Y3 and Y4 I have a good understanding of the broad educational journey children undertake in KS1 and KS2. I am at my happiest  sharing a love of art, English and history (with a penchant for dressing up) through which children are encouraged to learn more about the world around them - past and present - but also to achieve their academic potential. Spare time? Reading, theatre, a renewed love of tennis, time with my two lovely labradors, Percy the cat and of course, my three boys.
