The Management Team
I'm Mr Owen, the Headteacher of the school. We do our utmost here to make the motto come alive "to care for one another and be the best that we can be". We aspire to ensure values of kindness, generosity, etc are a real part of the school community. As a result, for staff and children school is great fun - most of the time! It's a place where we all put in a shift to do a good day's work, but we're able to have a giggle as we go.
Hello! My name is Mrs Beynon and I am the Deputy Headteacher of the school. I am very excited to teach Year 5/6 this year in the Sky Phase! I have taught at Bishopston for 5 years, I feel incredibly lucky to work in such a lovely school with beautiful grounds for lots of outdoor learning. I always aim for my classroom to be a fun, welcoming place to be where no one is afraid to make a ‘marvellous’ mistake as part of their learning journey.
Foundation Phase Teachers
Shwmae! My name is Mrs. Thomas and I teach Reception in Sea Phase. I am also literacy and outdoor learning lead. I have been teaching here for the last 5 years. What a wonderful five years it has been! I attended Bishopston Primary as a child and still live locally with my two children. We have lots of pets – two dogs, two lizards and a tortoise. My hobbies are running, swimming and cycling – anything outdoorsy really. I drive a campervan and love to travel too – I’m really interested in different languages and cultures. At the weekend you'll find me at the beach - rain or shine!
