Staff In Foundation 2 (F2)
Suzanne Everitt earned a degree in Early Childhood Studies and a PGCE at the University of Leicester. She worked all the time she was studying, in various posts, but always with children at holiday clubs, after-school clubs and in crèches.
Suzanne’s first teaching post was at Wickham Market County Primary School then she moved over to the nursery and became the foundation stage manager, where she gained Early Years Key Practitioner Status, where teachers came from different schools to observe and share good practice.
Suzanne took a short break from teaching to have her two sons and joined Woodbridge Primary School in 2010.
In her spare time Suzanne enjoys baking cakes, and running around after her children, (football, beavers, gymnastics, swimming…) When she can find the time she also enjoys Zumba, coffee mornings with friends and eating cake!
Claire Bradshaw was raised in Bedfordshire and went to Nottingham Trent University to study Media & Communication. She graduated in 1998 and took a gap year to travel around the world. On her return to the UK she became the producer of an internet start-up in Buckingham and after several years in this post, she met her (teacher) husband. Claire then moved back to Nottingham where she undertook a Graduate Teaching Programme; Claire’s first teaching post was at Repton Primary School as a Y1 class teacher.
In 2006 Claire had her first son and in 2009 her husband’s job brought the family to Suffolk and she had her second son. Once settled in Woodbridge, Claire began working at Woodbridge Primary school doing PPA cover in the nursery, since then she has developed her role and now covers classes across the school.
Claire enjoys spending time with her family (particularly if it means going to the beach!) She also enjoys eating out and time spent catching up with her friends.
Claire currently teaches in F2 and Y2.

On her travels, Sally qualified as a scuba diver and enjoyed liveaboard diving on the Great Barrier Reef. Sally has also skydived over the Whitsunday islands; she has sailed all over the world, skied and hiked on glaciers.
Somewhere in all of that Sally has also raised two daughters (both of whom attended Woodbridge Primary school). In her spare time, Sally still enjoys scuba diving, going camping and spending time with family and friends.
