Cheryl Borrett grew up in Suffolk, travelling to Stirling to gain her BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology. She has worked in many areas including as a Play Support Assistant, Psychology Assistant and a Nursing Assistant (quite a helpful person!). She returned to her hometown to complete her PGCE at University Campus Suffolk.
Cheryl is excited to be at Woodbridge Primary School in her first teaching post. She uses a thematic approach to teaching, aiming to bridge the gap between Foundation and Key Stage 1 by encouraging children to learn by exploring areas they have expressed an interest in.
In her spare time, Cheryl enjoys all things arty and crafty, reading, spending (far too much) time with her three rabbits and she tries her best to keep fit (to balance out her love of food!).
Lucy is from Preston, Lancashire and moved down to Suffolk about 18 years ago … and she loves it!
Lucy graduated in 1995 from Cambridge University with a B.Ed. (Hons) in Education and Art. She has been a teacher for 22 years, teaching pupils aged from 5 to 13 years old. Fifteen of those years she spent in a Middle school in Suffolk as the Head of Art and Textiles.
Last year Lucy decided to step back from being a class teacher to become a teaching assistant. This was so that she could have more time to devote to her family – her 9 year old daughter keeps her very busy! Lucy also likes to try to spend some time continuing to develop her own artwork to sell.
Lucy enjoys anything crafty, she has a go at silversmithing, dressmaking and anything to do with textiles! She also loves animals, especially dogs and horses. One of her favourite ways to relax is to walk her dog Molly in the countryside around her house in Butley.
