Welcome to: Our Staff

Headteacher: Mr Iain Horner
Asst Headteacher: Mrs Katy Salter
I have been teaching now for 17 years and I have been part of Chesterton CE Primary school for 11 years. Previously I have taught in both Beech and Ash class and have really enjoyed seeing so many children develop as they progress through school.
In my current role as Senior Leader, I am lucky enough to teach children across all our age groups, as well as work alongside Mr Horner in many aspects of school life. My specific responsibilities include coordinating English across school and I also have a key role in Safeguarding.
Chesterton is a lovely community to be part of and one of the most enjoyable and rewarding features of my job is getting to know our families and working together to support the learning and development of our pupils
Asst Headteacher/ Special Educational Needs Coordinator: Ms Sara Bailey
Maple: Mrs Isabelle Leonard
I started working at Chesterton in September 2012, and I currently teach the lovely bunch of Reception children in Maple Class! I really enjoy creating opportunities for practical learning - the messier the better! Alongside my role as a class teacher and Early Years Coordinator, I will continue to coordinate Computing for the school. I have a keen interest in technology and encourage the children to use it as much as possible in their learning.
Beech: Miss Elizabeth Jones
I started working at Chesterton in September 2013 and so far it has been brilliant! I teach year 1 and 2 in Beech class.
I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, so when the time came I chose to do a 4 year B.Ed at Chester University.
I really enjoy teaching maths and R.E., looking at and developing the fun and interesting ways that the subjects can be taught to make them memorable. I love seeing children developing their own ideas, opinions and skills. Not only that but their confidence too!
Ash: Mr Jonathan Craven (0.6) , Mrs Katy Salter (0.4), Miss Hannah Mansfield (Student/Trainee Teacher)
Apple: Miss Lindy Gascoigne
I have been teaching since 1986 and have worked in a variety of schools including the Lycee International in St-Germain -En Laye; Paris.
I will continue to co-ordinate PE across the school and am also taking on the role of RE co-ordinator. I am looking forward to developing the teaching of RE by the introduction of Big Questions as I love to challenge children's thinking and give them chance to explore new ideas. I remain committed to the concept of outdoor learning and get very excited when planning these sessions!
Oak: Miss Grace Regan and Mr Iain Horner
This is my third year at Chesterton, and my second teaching Oak Class. Prior to working in Oxfordshire, I taught in inner city Birmingham, in a school with diverse needs.
I will continue to co-ordinate Maths in school this year, alongside my university studies for becoming a Primary Maths Specialist Teacher.
I always enjoy witnessing the 'light bulb moment' that the children encounter; it makes being a working mummy that little bit easier!
