meet the year 1 staff

Mrs Loughran

Hi, I am Mrs Loughran.  I’m very excited to be moving to work with you in year 1. I have two boys; Max is starting year 7 and Lennox is going into year 11. My family and I love to go camping in Cornwall and we enjoy bodyboarding in the waves. One of my hobbies is playing the piano. I like to listen to and watch live music at Rock City.  At school I enjoy teaching children maths and how to use maths in real life.

Miss Woodward

Hello, I’m Miss Woodward and I have been at Dovecote for 6 years. I am really looking forward to teaching you in year 1. It is going to be a fantastic year and I cannot wait to have fun learning together! At school, I enjoy reading, learning and acting out stories and poems. Outside of school, I like cooking, gardening and taking my dog for long country walks. I also have a house rabbit called Tails. She has lots of energy and loves waking me up in the morning!

Miss Measom

Hello, I’m Miss Measom and this will be my 5th year working at Dovecote. Last year I moved from year 2 into year 1. I am really looking forward to working with you all, I know we’re going to have a great year. In my spare time I like to practise my sketching, particularly of portraits, and I have had so much fun drawing for my friends and family. I also love going down to London to see my family and watch musicals. My favourites are The Lion King, which I’m going to see this summer, and Wicked.

Mrs Hill

Hello, I am Mrs Hill and I have worked in Early years at Dovecote for over 14 years. I have 2 grown up children. Rosie, who is 20 and at university and Josh who is 23 and a musician and actor in his spare time. I enjoy going for long walks and swimming every morning before school.

Mrs Windle

Hello, as you probably already know I am Mrs Windle and I have always worked in Early Years. I have two grown up children who have both recently finished university. I have two lovely big dogs and together we do lots of walking. In school I support children with their speech and language and I also take groups for nurture sessions.
