Meet The Staff
J. WilliamsHigher Level Teaching Assistant / Nursery Teacher - I am the Nursery teacher. I have worked at Pembroke Primary School for 18 years in many classes in both Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2. Having taught across the foundation classes for many years I am in the perfect position to help the nursery children learn the skills that will help them when they move up to BIG school ! My aim is to help the children to be confident, happy learners ready for new ideas and to learn about their world. We do t
I started at Pembroke Primary in 2012 as Deputy Headteacher and absolutely love working at this school. We have a wonderful team of staff and amazing children, I feel very lucky to be part of the Pembroke Family.
I am Professional Learning Lead for the school and Health & Wellbeing Leader. Ensuring that all our staff and pupils are happy, supported and are able to make progress in all aspects of their learning is key and I am very excited about the launch of the new Curriculum for Wales in 2022. We are already transitioning to this new curriculum and it is exciting to make necessary changes to our current curriculum to make sure that all our learners have a successful future.
Outside of school life I am a Mummy to two young children who keep me very busy and family time is very important to me, we love camping and exploring the great outdoors. I am also a keen runner and spend much of my free time running with my local club and of course I enjoy the Daily Mile with everyone at Pembroke.
I am the Reception teacher and ALNCo at Pembroke Primary School. I joined the school after completing my final teaching practice in the Reception class. Along with curriculum requirements a key aspect of my role is to support the transition of our young pupils into school life. I’ve taught in both Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2.
As ALNCo my role is to support children with additional learning needs throughout mainstream provision and to work with the governing body to ensure the needs of the pupils are met along with advising and supporting other staff members in school. With the new changes to the ALN bill the role continues to be challenging and fulfilling.
I have been lucky enough to work with the fantastic children of Pembroke Primary for over 20 years! I am currently responsible for the Humanities Area of Learning and love to see, and work, with the enthusiasm and commitment of the Eco Committee challenging the school with projects to improve our environment. I am the Year 1 teacher with a passion for the Early Years, so you will usually find us busy creating, building and investigating inside and outside.
I currently teach year 2 but I have taught across the whole primary age range. I am the Foundation Phase Leader and part of the Senior Leadership team. This involves working with my colleagues to ensure all our pupils have an amazing learning experience from the minute they start in nursery or reception. I am the lead teacher for Language, Literacy and Communication which involves liaising with staff within school and within the south east Wales area on all things English and Welsh.
During my time at Pembroke, I have taught a variety of age groups in both Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2. I currently share the role of Year 3 teacher with Miss Morris, and we work closely together to support, encourage and inspire the pupils in our care. I am curriculum lead for Expressive Arts across the school.
I am a supply teacher, currently working long-term in Year 3. My role is to help facilitate the children’s learning and to guide and support them. It is lovely to see a child’s ambition and confidence grow and I am proud to be a part of their journey through education. I have a passion for Art and Design so enjoy helping the children to develop their creativity and inspiration.
I am a supply teacher who came to Pembroke just over a year ago to cover in Year 3. I absolutely loved it straight away and having taught in lots of different schools can testify that Pembroke really is a special place. I was blessed with the opportunity to stay for another year with the class I had become so attached to and have been lucky enough to help them learn, grow and thrive over the last year. I believe that health and wellbeing are vitally important in creating a stable environment to live and learn and outside school I do my best to keep active and healthy so I can set an example to the children, too.
I have enjoyed teaching across the school in both phases. In my current role I am responsible for leading, and keeping up to date with, Science and Technology. I enjoy sharing my passion for outdoor education with the children in our amazing grounds. This might be in Forest School, growing vegetables and flowers or just tending to our hive of bees.
I have been fortunate to have worked at Pembroke Primary for over 12 years, covering PPA to begin with and then joined the ALC as one of the teachers. I have seen the ALC grow from one class to three and have been lucky to work with a dedicated team. I became ALC lead teacher in September this year and look forward to many more years working in the ALC watching it grow, develop and helping the children achieve their full potential.
I am Mrs Tyson and have worked at the school for some time, seeing many changes over the years. I have taught in all the key stages and now teach in the Additional Learning Centre.
