Additional Roles


I have worked at Grinling Gibbons Primary School since 2014.

I am proud to work here because it is such a friendly school where everyone looks out for each other: staff, children and parents alike. We have fantastic resources, dedicated teachers and children who love to learn, which makes working here very rewarding and enjoyable.

As a teacher, I have an interest in, and commitment to, each child.  I work to create a class environment which supports, extends and engages the learning of every child and I am committed to ensuring that children have opportunities to explore their aspirations and enhance their life chances.

Sally-Ann Warner
Teaching Assistant Year 5

I have been working at Grinling Gibbons Primary School for nearly nine years and have enjoyed all my years working here. I take great pride in reinforcing the schools ethos, aiming to inspire all individuals. Working in this school has given me the opportunity to work with all year groups, which has boosted my confidence.

My role is to help the children with their learning and motivate them to achieve their targets, and it gives me great satisfaction to know that I am part of the children’s learning journey, and a valued member of staff.
