Robyn Scott – Year 2 Teacher in Tigers Class

I am an NQT teacher at Roselands and I am delighted to be teaching Tigers in Year 2 this school year. I first met the Roselands team when I volunteered in Year 1 in 2017. After this I realised how much I wanted to teach and to become a class teacher so I took up studying at Brighton University for my PGCE year. For two of my placements I was able to join Roselands for 3 terms whilst I studied. Being given this opportunity to work at Roselands has been an amazing experience so far where I have been able to apply all of my learning from the other experienced teachers in the Roselands Stafford Federation. My main goal as a teacher is to support the children in their development by showing them the skills they need to have so they too can achieve their dreams.

Outside of school I enjoy getting creative by painting, cooking and gardening. I also like to keep active when I can by going to the gym. I like to keep healthy by making exercise fun so I regularly attend a class called aerial hoop. I enjoy spending time with family, friends and a good book too!

Jo Prowse – Year 1 Teacher in Parrot Class (Wednesday & Alternate Fridays)

I am currently a part time Year 1 teacher at Roselands. I have worked here for many years, both full time and part time and I love working at Roselands. I am very passionate about ensuring young children have the best start to their education and I strongly believe in the nurturing ethos that Roselands has.

I have 2 children of my own and I love spending time with them and with other friends and family. I am also very keen on Karate and proud to have achieved my second black belt. In my spare time I enjoy Zumba, Jive dancing, reading and cooking.

Lydia Dargan – EYFS Teacher in Dolphins Class

I am the Dolphins class teacher and I couldn’t have wished for a better school than Roselands to complete my first year of teaching. Before teaching I worked in a nursery for 5 years and grew up surrounded by a large family.

My passion lies in Early Years and I believe learning through play is at the heart of the Reception Classroom. Learning is fun and engaging, and I believe this motivates children to be the best they can be. Through the opportunities I provide in my classroom, I hope that children develop a love for learning, a love for my classroom and a love for the school environment.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, and going on adventures to find new places. I love to watch football, and I support the best team ever, Liverpool. I also occasionally watch Brighton and Hove Albion play at the Amex and love cheering them on!

I am very excited and grateful to be working at Roselands and look forward to my time at this wonderful school!

Jonathan Haddock – Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion

I am the Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion at the Roselands and Stafford Federation and I am proud to lead this role across the two schools. I joined the federation in September 2017 and previous to that I had worked as a SENCo, Leader of Learning, Nurture teacher, Class teacher, Inclusive Learning Tutor and a Teaching Assistant in a specialist school. I have been working in education for 18 years with 11 of those years as a qualified teacher. I enjoy my role being able to support children to aspire to be the best they can be and supporting their families to get the best outcomes that we can.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy music and football and I play football for my local team!
