Meet the teachers
Find out a little bit more about our teaching team!
I have worked at Stamford Bridge Primary School since 2010, first as Deputy Headteacher and then as Head. I love my job; I have the privilege of getting to know every child in our school and working with an amazing team of teachers and support staff who are passionate about learning.
I am a self-confessed bookworm and like nothing more than time out in a quiet place with a huge pile of books to read. Bliss! I have 3 children and a retired greyhound, Lady. I have returned to university to study for a Doctorate in Education, too!
I'm Mrs Foxton and I teach the Year 2 children in Fox class. I am also the school's deputy headteacher. My teaching career began in Hull close to 15 years ago. During this time I have held a number of roles including: Key Stage 1 leader; Key Stage 2 leader; English lead, SENDCo and more! Over the years I have been lucky enough to teach from the foundation stage right through to year 6 - with year 5 as an exception!
Outside of school I am also a very keen mountain biker and enjoy hitting the red routes at Dalby Forest. I am also a mum to two very energetic boys and two (even more) energetic dogs.
I have really enjoyed working at Stamford Bridge Primary School. I love working in the classroom with the children to help them achieve their potential! I currently teach the Meerkat Class, with the Year 3 and 4 children.
Out of school, I am a season ticket holder for the mighty Huddersfield Town, enjoy swimming and love to read as many books as I possibly can! I am a proud Mum to Billy and love spending time with my family.
I am the current Bear Class teacher and am probably known for being 'the sporty one' because I'm sports co-ordinator. If anyone needs anything PE, they usually come to me! I play football and cricket in my spare time and have 2 dogs (Indy and Skye). My favourite food is a burger and I don't like chocolate cake (weird, I know). I enjoy teaching at the top of school for the challenge and hard work that goes into all the amazing things we achieve in Year 5 and 6. Work hard, play hard is our motto.

I have taught at Stamford Bridge for a number of years and I am the Designated Safeguarding Leader. Having studied politics at university, I am the resident expert on everything elections, current events and news based - I have even visited the Houses of Parliament and became a Parliamentary Ambassador in school. I have also coached the school football and rugby team for the last two years. I have a Yorkshire Terrier called Alfie and I also have Coeliac disease (which sounds serious but just means I can't eat gluten!). I also love going to the cinema and my favourite time of year is Christmas.
I have been teaching since 2004 and love seeing the children grow and learn. Music is a particular passion of mine and I enjoy playing the cello, as well as squeezing singing into every subject I teach! I love being outside and my class are often to be found using the school grounds as part of a lesson. I am the subject leader for science.
I have worked at Stamford Bridge School since 2016 and I very much enjoy being here. I love working with all the children and watching them learn, grow and achieve whilst having fun and making new friends. I am interested in history and the local area and co-ordinate the history curriculum in school. I enjoy days at the beach and Dalby forest as well as eating pizza, pasta and chocolate!
I have been a teacher since 2015 but this is my first year at Stamford Bridge – I am very excited to join such a wonderful school. After studying Youth and Community Work at the University of Manchester, I decided I wanted to become a teacher, so I completed my PGCE and moved to York. When I am not teaching, you will find me by the seaside in sunny Scarborough, visiting my family, friends and my spaniel, Jarvis! I also love to travel the world and enjoy visiting new places – my favourite city that I have visited is Barcelona.
I have been at Stamford Bridge Primary since 2014 where I joined the school as a new qualified teacher. I enjoy teaching in the Early Years Foundation Stage, supporting children as they learn through play and helping them settle into school life. Before joining the school, I taught English as a foreign language and spent quite a few years in catering, working as a chef and restaurant manager. I also have a background in art and due to this I am the art and design technology coordinator. Outside school, I keep fit by playing netball, cycling, swimming and running. I also enjoy cooking for friends and family and visiting interesting places around the country and wider world.
I have worked at Stamford Bridge Primary School since 2005. Originally, I was a class teacher teaching across both key stages. I now teach French to all of KS2, which I love. My love of France and the French language began with family holidays, progressed to working as an au pair and then onto teaching in a French school. I have taught in 4 different countries, including a variety of schools in England. I was born in Stamford Bridge and was a pupil at this school, so I have now come full circle!
