      Elizabeth Lambert - Principal

      Being the youngest of five children I was desperate to start school. I could not bear to see my brothers and sisters leaving me at home so at the age of three I started my educational journey. I loved school - I loved sport, music, maths, writing, asking questions... - my dad always encouraged me to asks lots of questions! Academically maths was the subject that I excelled in and through gaining a maths degree it provided me with the opportunity to become a teacher. As Principal of Woodstock Primary Academy, I apply my problem-solving skills every day and know that I am very lucky to have been given the opportunity to work here. The children, and staff, are amazing and I want them to enjoy their educational journey as much as I have and to find a career that is as rewarding as mine.

      Timothy Bosworth - Assistant Headteacher

      Over the past six years, I have been lucky enough to work throughout the school with a range of age groups. One of my many passions is raising children's attendance and ensuring children have the opportunity to go on residential trips. Outside school, I love challenges as I have previously run a marathon, climbed mountains and just completed a triathlon. Recently I have just been appointed as a Cub Scout Leader and love nothing more than organising adventurous activities for children in and out of school.

      Claire Beach - Acting Deputy Head

      I have been teaching at Woodstock for 6 years and have relished the opportunity to watch children grow and achieve their full potential both academically and socially. I have a passion for Upper Key Stage 2, especially the teaching of English and engaging children in their writing. I am determined to ensure that all children, irrespective of background or ability, have the best possible opportunities. I am proud to be part of the progress that Woodstock is making and I am committed to the success of Woodstock in the future.

      Kirti Makwana - Acting Deputy Head

      I have been at Woodstock since September 2013. I feel very lucky to be part of such a lovely school. My passion lies in the Early Years Foundation Stage, where no two days are the same! It is a privilege to see the children's personalities grow. Outside of school, I like sunny days, eating ice-cream and spending time with my family. I dislike being cold and roller coasters!

      The world is a beautiful place full of hidden gems. I love to travel and share my experiences with the children I teach. I hope one day the children I have inspired will continue to look for the hidden wonders of the world, finding some of those gems for themselves.

      I have been teaching at Woodstock for 8 years. During my time here, I have seen many positive changes that have enabled Woodstock to develop into good school. Personally, I have enjoyed watching children progress both personally and academically. I have a passion for teaching writing, especially narrative, linked to a novel focus enabling children to be hooked into their work. I strive to ensure children are suitably challenged to be the best they can be.

      I started teaching at Woodstock in August 1992 and since then have seen many changes including those to the school building and many changes to what and how we teach the children. It has been a journey I have always enjoyed but for me the one thing that has never changed is the children at Woodstock. They have and continue to be the most wonderful children who never fail to amaze me in what they can achieve. It is these children and some great colleagues that have kept me happily at Woodstock for all these years. I now have the pleasure of meeting some of the children I used to teach as parents and it's great to see what they have achieved since leaving Woodstock even if it does make me feel old!
