Meet our Head of Houses
My name is Miss Smith, and I am an art teacher as well as head of house here at King Edwards Academy. I am not only passionate about all things arty within school, I am also a published illustrator of children’s books, professional mural painter, and movie nerd!
In school I really struggled academically, and I had to work extra hard compared to my classmates at times. But because of my determination- and some say stubbornness, I have achieved a lot more then anyone would have previously expected from me growing up. I want everyone in Franklin house to do the same and feel like there is something they can achieve and succeed in and aim high. #WeWill
Hello, my name is Mr Morgan, I am the Head of House for Newton, this means that I encourage and arrange for Newton house members to take part in extra-curricula activities like sports and charity events. I am a huge sports fan enjoying things like football, tennis and chess, I’m also a history teacher so whatever your interests are I will find a way for you to involve yourself with Newton house! I look forward to meeting you all soon and hopefully we can bring the house cup home to Newton house!
Hello – my name is Mr Foster and I am Head of Tennyson House at KEVO and am also the Sports Enrichment Officer. I spend most of my time here making sure all the sports enrichment clubs are running and fixtures are being played. I think being part of a house is such a key part of school life and in Tennyson we work hard at making sure you feel part of the team all the time. We share any worries when they appear and make sure no problem is left for you to deal with alone, a happy student always learns more and Tennyson students are the happiest.
When I am not at KEVI, I am at my home where I enjoy looking after my two dogs. I also love playing hockey and support Arsenal (sadly).
I look forward to leading the Tennyson Titans.
Hello, my name is Miss Eyre and I’m the Head of the best house ‘Willoughby’ alongside being a PE teacher.
The best part of my job is working and supporting you the students to achieve your full potential within PE and as people. Within the house system me and the other Heads of House can be very competitive as we all want to win!!! I will always push students to achieve their potential, I think I’m firm but fair. I love seeing the students grow as people and become young adults.
Outside of school – I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with my friends. I enjoy all sports and often play golf, badminton and tennis with my friends. I also love hiking and visiting the Peak District and Lake District.
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
"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."
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
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
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.
