Who's Who

Headteacher

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.

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.

Computing

 

 

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 

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 K Cullip

Mrs R Adams (Mon/Tues)

I joined Kingham in 2004 and have been lucky enough to have taught most of the year groups. I enjoy working with the children and seeing them grow in their maturity, knowledge and skills. Outside school I am a very active mum, having two primary aged children, supporting them in their very busy activities. When I get time, I enjoy walking my dog, playing softball and solving number and logic puzzles.

I have been a teacher since 2012 having completed a BA Primary Education degree at the University of Worcester. I joined Kingham Primary School in September 2013 and have taught both Years One and Two here. I enjoy working and learning alongside the children but most of all sharing a love of learning. Outside of school, I enjoy going on long walks in the country with the dog.

Year 3 Teacher: Miss J Ralf

PE

I joined Kingham Primary School in September 2016 as a Newly Qualified Teacher, having completed a BA Primary Education course at York St John University. I am incredibly dedicated, continually striving to create a classroom full of happy and enthusiastic children, who share a love for learning and thrive to always try their best. 
As a keen runner and tennis enthusiast outside of school, I am particularly interested in supporting the development of Sport and P.E across the school. 
 

 

 

Year 4 Teacher: Mr C Lamming

Music

Maths

I qualified as a teacher in 2012 with a PGCE from Roehampton, after completing a joint degree in History and Politics from the University of Kent. After working for two years in London, I moved out to Oxfordshire in 2014 and started work at Kingham. Now in Year 4, I spent three years teaching Year 5 so know the requirements of where the children need to aim for. In a primary school setting each day is different and I encourage the children to not only focus on their academic profile, but develop a real love for learning and investigation into what interests them. Last year I became a father so my spare time is taken up with running after a one-year old! As well as this, I am a big fan of movies, reading and turning to my hand to baking & cooking.

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.

 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!
