Who's who?

  • Mrs Jane Watts

    HEADTEACHER

    This is my first headship role and what an amazingly special place to take on this exciting opportunity. Prior to headship, I was Deputy Head for nine years and over my 17 years of teaching I have enjoyed teaching both Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils. I always refer to Alconbury School as our “Alconbury family”. This family extends to include all of the staff, pupils, parents, governors and so many members of the wider community that all make valuable contributions to our school. Every day at Alconbury I learn something new from somebody and most often it is from our pupils.

  • Mrs Hannah Mulcrone

    DEPUTY HEADTEACHER

    I have now worked at Alconbury Primary for two brilliant years! It has been a pleasure to have been welcomed into the 'Alconbury Family' and to get to know all of our wonderful children, families and staff. During the last academic year, I have had a class in Year Three and also taught all of the other classes at some point during the year. In the school I am responsible for our active and enterprising School Council who meet regularly to improve the school. My other roles are Science Subject Leader and SENDCO, so I am kept busy. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children, reading and swimming, if I get a chance.

  • Mrs Maria Radwell

    KEY STAGE 2 CO ORDINATOR & YEAR 6 TEACHER

    It has been a privilege to have taught at Alconbury for more than twenty five years. All three of my own children were fortunate to have attended this school and have many fond memories. Throughout my time here, I have adopted many ‘hats’, coordinating a wide range of subjects across all aspects of the curriculum. Presently, I am the Numeracy co-ordinator for the school, one of the designated members of staff for child protection and a member of the SLT. I am also a staff governor and a member of FACES. In my spare time, I enjoy socialising with family and friends, knitting and reading.

In my spare time, I enjoy keeping fit at the gym, baking and reading.

    TEACHING ASSISTANT Y5

    I have been a member of the 'Alconbury' family for eight years. My daughter, Sasha has just graduated from university and my son, Oscar is in year 8 at Hinchingbrooke, following on from his wonderful journey through Alconbury Primary School. As parents, my husband and I chose Alconbury for our son (as we live out of catchment) and what a superb decision it was. I am lucky enough to be able to share my musical talents with the children during Collective Worship and 'Sing Up' time in the classroom. This also extends to after school clubs such as singing at the O2 in London as part of the Young Voices choir, A1 Music Festival at the Peterborough Cresset. The children also enjoy singing within the local community, particularly at Christmas. It's always so rewarding to hear the children singing in the corridors or playground. Singing releases 'feel-good' endorphins resulting in happy children! How wonderful!
