Lucy Boland

Teaching Assistant

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.

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 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.

Liane Quinney

Teaching Assistant

Liane joined Woodbridge Primary school in 2017 working briefly as kitchen assistant, then as midday supervisor. In 2020 she took on the role of Learning Support Assistant, working one-to-one with a young student with ASD, and in 2021 completed the Understanding Autism course to further support her role.

A broad and diverse work history, Liane originally trained as a care-worker supporting children and young adults with mental and physical disabilities. After several years living in Canada, she then went on to become a qualified Painter and Decorator renovating and refurbishing properties before gaining a 1st class BA (Hons) in Interior and Spatial Design and working as a Bespoke Furniture Painter for a luxury kitchen company. She has also trained and worked locally as a gym and fitness instructor.

Liane’s favourite place to be is anywhere with her three daughters and grandson. She enjoys exercise and strength training, being creative, reading, and long walks in nature.
