Biography to follow
Mrs Rhea Lovelock: Primary Teacher (Year 6a)
My name is Mrs Lovelock and I am new member of the teaching team, I am so excited to be starting my Grange Park journey and can’t wait to get to know all of our children and families.
I have enjoyed teaching across different settings and year groups for the last eight years and have held various different roles and responsibilities at my previous schools, including lead PE teacher for all West Kent primary schools. I am passionate about bringing the curriculum to life for our children, through dynamic and engaging teaching whereby all can thrive.
During the weekends my husband, two children and I love being outdoors; going for muddy bike rides, exploring different woodlands, trips to the seaside and pottering about on our allotment. I also love to play netball and have been part of a team since I left school!
Mrs Abigail Rodreigo: Primary Teacher (Year 7b)& Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
I am Mrs Rodreigo and I am the Year 4/5 class teacher.
I joined Grange Park in January 2019 and it has been a privilege to be part of the development of the new Stansted site from the beginning. I am passionate about making learning fun and tailoring learning for all children and young people to succeed both academically and personally.
As a child I always wanted to be a teacher and after studying Education and Developmental Psychology, I ran a tuition centre before training as a primary teacher. I have taught across Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 and have always been drawn to supporting pupils with additional needs.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing Netball and love to spend my holidays travelling, mostly around Europe but also frequently visit family in Sri Lanka.
Miss Georgina Self: Primary Teacher (Year 6b)
Prior to joining Grange Park in January 2021, I was working as a Year 5 and 6 Teacher. I graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University in 2018 with a BA (Hons) in Primary Education. Throughout university placements and employment, I have taught across both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, giving me a real insight into the curriculum as a whole.
I have learnt how to plan, teach and assess at a high standard and am able to differentiate for several styles of learning and levels of attainment. I’m looking forward to meeting the team at Grange Park and getting to know the children so that I can support them both academically and socially.
Miss Jemma Woodhead: Primary Teacher (Year 7a)
I graduated from Brighton University in 2014 with a Ba (Hons) in English Education with a Qualified Teacher Status. Since then I have spent 4 years teaching in an Academy Trust in Outer London. For 2 of those years, I worked with Year 5 before spending a year in Year 6 and developing a more active role being the leader of PE. In the final year at the Trust, I spent a term in Year 2 to gain experience in a different Key Stage, before being put back into Year 6 in order to help boost children’s abilities who were below aged related expectations. The SATs results for that year were the best that the school had seen in the last 4 years.
I joined Grange Park School in June 2019 and helped to organise and open the Primary site at Stansted. Since then I have and am still currently working in Year 6, helping build children’s curriculum knowledge and wellbeing, ready for them to have smooth transitions into Secondary School.
Our Learning Mentors
My name is Mr Beard and I am a Year 4/5 Learning Mentor. I joined Grange Park and have been a part of Stansted since November 2019, I have enjoined seeing the school grow and I feel grateful to be a member of the team. I am passionate about helping all of our students in their education and life skills. My favourite subjects are Maths and PE. Most of my free time is spent training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, playing basketball and going to the gym.
My name is Miss Cavey and I've been a teaching assistant at Grange Park since September 2019. Having found school difficult myself, I am passionate about supporting pupils even in their more challenging times and want to help all children achieve their full potential academically and personally too.
I particularly enjoy Art and drama as this gives pupils opportunities to express themselves in different ways.
Hello my name is Mrs Robbins and I joined Grange Park as a Learning Mentor in June 2020. I started working at the Wrotham site and moved over to Stansted in October 2020. As I am new to education, I have relied on fantastic colleagues and lots of training to understand how to help the amazing children at Grange Park School.
A little bit about me. I live with my husband and teenager daughter. I love singing and have been part of the Rock Choir for 9 years. I have been lucky to sing at Abbey Road Studios, Disneyland Paris and the Edinburgh Fringe.
I joined Grange Park in April 2019 as a Learning Mentor and it was a privilege to welcome our first children to the Primary site at Stansted when it opened. I am patient, nurturing and enjoy building positive relationships with the children. I am passionate about helping children to be the best they can be and for them to enjoy being in a school environment.
I have always worked with Primary age children across Key Stages 1 and 2. Prior to working at Grange Park I have been a 1:1 TA to several students with EHC plans and complex needs in mainstream schools. I look forward to the school expanding and am excited to welcome more children to Grange Park.
On the weekends I enjoy spending time with my family, working in my garden, and going to the theatre.
