I’m Mrs King and I’ve worked at Eastchurch Primary School for more than 10 years. I teach classes when the class teacher has special meetings to go to, lessons to plan or is feeling poorly. This means I can pop up anywhere in school, from Little Owls nursery up to Year 6. I like my job because no two days are ever the same and I get to teach children all the way through their time at Eastchurch Primary School. I am usually at All Saints but sometimes I get to visit St Clement’s school too. I really enjoy helping children understand and find out about what’s happening in the world and hearing their ideas about making our planet a better place to live.
Mrs Jeffery: I regularly cover Badger, Squirrel, Hedgehog and Tiger classes while their class teachers prepare exciting activities for the following weeks. Occasionally I cover the three other classes at St. Clement site if their class teachers are not in school or at meetings. This means that I know nearly all the children by name, although I often muddle some of them up! On a Monday after school and Wednesday lunchtime I help KS2 children with their homework. I also go to All Saints site if needed. I assist Mrs. Seymour in the S.E.N. department, try to keep the library organized, listen to children read and many other tasks in school.
Mrs Edwards: Hello, I’m a HLTA and I cover classes from Year R to Year 6 across both sites. I regularly cover Badger, Kingfisher, Hedgehog, Cuckoo and Lion classes. I also support Lion Class with their learning in class at Saint Clement site. I like my role as HLTA as I get to meet all the classes as well as having the privilege of working with small groups. I particularly enjoy teaching English, Maths, PE and Geography. It makes my day to see pupils enjoying their learning. When not at school, I can be found dog walking, reading, cooking or in the gym.
Mrs Verdenik: PPA Cover Supervisor
Hello my name is Jill Stevenson- Irons but, the children call me Mrs Irons. It’s a whole lot easier! I share my time equally between both our sites ,as the speech and language co-ordinator. I work closely with all the teaching staff and local NHS speech and language therapy team (SALT). My job is to support children with their speech and language development. We do this with fun activities with in small groups and on an individual basis. At home I like to walk my three dogs and ride my horse. I also enjoy kayaking and riding my Triumph motor bike.
