Meet our Teaching Assistants

Mr A Brown

Mr Brown here. I have the best job at KEVI: I'm a teaching assistant. This means you'll see me in different classrooms, working with different teachers, and possibly even different subjects. The one thing I'll always be doing, though, is helping students get the best out of themselves. My job is to ensure students have equal access to the learning, regardless of their ability or background. At KEVI we have high standards for ourselves, and it gives me a lot of satisfaction to help students reach their potential. Sometimes I'll be working with an individual, sometimes small groups, or I might be floating round the classroom, dropping in to check you're OK. And nothing makes me happier than being asked for help.




Mrs S Sherriff

Hi, I am Mrs Sherriff and I work as a teaching assistant here at KEVI, you will usually find me in humanities lesson (geography, history or R.E.). Sometimes I will be working with individual students or small groups of students but I will always be happy to help any student to do their personal best whether it’s in a lesson or break and lunch times.

Outside of school I enjoy going away in my camper van on weekends and holidays, I also love to make things whether its sewing, knitting or crochet.

Mrs H Waters

My name is Mrs. Waters and I have been at KEVI for 14 years.

My role in school is to support those students that have a diagnosis of Dyslexia. Moving forward from Year 6 into the Academy can be quite a daunting prospect – and I am here to help all students adapt to their new school. Generally, each student will have an assessment report from the Specialist Teaching Team and this will give me strategies to work with you.

You will have a session a week on a 1-1 or 1-2 basis that will help to give you confidence to succeed while you are at KEVI.

I also go into some lessons to support the older students as they prepare for their GCSE’s.

I really enjoy the role that I have at KEVI and it is so rewarding to see students making progress as they move through each year group.

Out of school as most of my students know I have a Westie called Brian so we have lots of walks around Spilsby.

SEND - Assistant SEDCO

Mrs Shudell

"Hello, I'm Mrs Shudell and my role of the Assistant SENDCO is to support the day-to-day running of the SEN provision, seeking improved standards of achievement for students. This role is supported by reviewing, evaluating and implementing strategies to meet the needs of our students. I believe that every student is unique and should be valued for being who they are. I have very high expectations of you all from your presentation in uniform to the effort you put into your school work but above everything, all students must always support, encourage and be kind to one another. I look forward to seeing you in September."

Attendance Officer

Mrs Kwee

Hi and welcome to King Edward VI Academy, my name is Mrs Kwee and I am the Attendance Officer. My role is to monitor the attendance of all students and the reasons given for absences. I need to receive a message or text by 9am on each day that you are unable to attend giving the reason for your absence then I know whether to expect you in school or not - its always a big worry if we expect you in school but you have not turned up and we do not know the reason why.

If there is an issue that is preventing you from attending every day then please talk to me and together with your head of house and your parents/carers we can work out how to best help you - don't forget, good attendance equals good school grades!

You can usually find me in my office (on the ground floor near the science stairwell) and you are welcome to come and see me if you have any worries about coming into school. If I am not in my office -which does not happen very often - I could be either walking around school checking students are where they should be in their lessons or I could be out and about in my little car checking on students who have not turned up to school. If you see me around school please don't be shy and say hi, I like nothing more than seeing a smile and hearing a 'good morning/good afternoon'.

When I am not in school I enjoy spending time with my family going away in our little caravan, walking our dog, Benji, supporting in the running of a local swimming club (and doing some swimming myself), and a little bit of horse riding.

Behaviour Support Unit

Miss Smith

I run the BSU - Behaviour Support Unit

I have worked at KEVI for over 15yrs doing various jobs from being a TA to HLTA to HOH.

What I want from our students is to succeed at KEVI, most students will work hard and try their best, some students need more guidance in school with their behaviour. Behaviour is normally shown due to low self-esteem , not understanding questions, unable to work as quickly as other, but this doesn’t mean you’re naughty you just need to be guided to your own way of learning, its finding your pathway.

Lead First Aid and Librarian 

Mrs Crow

Hello my name is Mrs Crow

I am a very lucky person as I work with such an amazing team at KEVI.

I work in the library, classrooms and I am the lead first aider. You’ll see me all over the school!

The most important part of my job is to make sure every child feels safe, cared for while in school and reaches their full potential.

KEVI wants the best for every child and I hope and try to do my best to support, so every child can achieve their own best. Nothing is better than seeing a child smile when they have achieved the impossible and giving them the courage to have another go!

Out of school I am a Lincoln City fan, love the outdoors and very much a animal lover, you’ll also find me walking down a forest watching WRC or any car rallying in all weathers!

I am looking forward so much to meeting you all and starting the path of watching you become another of our amazing students.
