Who's who

Come and meet the staff at our school!

Mrs Cook

I have worked in education since 2001, first as a class teacher where I taught across the primary age range, and then as a Deputy Head teacher and Special Educational Needs Coordinator.  I joined Siddington Primary School as Head teacher in September 2020.  It is my job to ensure that children are happy to come to school, enjoy learning and have the opportunities to develop and grow as individuals.  I want to ensure that all children reach their potential and have high aspirations for their futures.

I have always loved education and completed my Masters degree in Education in 2018.  I enjoy it so much that I am currently continuing my studies at University!  In my spare time I love gardening, reading books, going out for dinner and travelling with my family. 


Miss Tranter

I joined Siddington in February 2017 as Assistant Head Teacher. I love my new job.  I teach in the Eagles class on Mondays to Wednesdays, then work across both schools on a Thursday.  The children are wonderful and never a day goes by without them making you smile and laugh lots!  Siddington has a warm and friendly atmosphere with a huge sense of community spirit.  My job is making sure everyone is learning to the best of the ability and the teachers are teaching well too. I also lead music across Siddington and Kemble.

Before Siddington I was a deputy head at a very large school so initially seeing only 100 children was a shock and assemblies felt very small!

I love being a mum to my two boys - Nathan and Joshua. I also love reading and singing in a choir as well as seeing my friends and family too.


Miss B Smith

I started at Siddington C of E Primary School in September 2021 and teach Key Stage One. I have had lots of experience working with this age group and I love the enthusiasm displayed by these little learners. I feel it is a privilege that I am responsible for educating the future generation; it is very important to me that children develop a thirst for knowledge and enjoy their learning. I gain great satisfaction from teaching motivating lessons that enable children to reach their full potential. In my own time I love exploring the great outdoors especially with my two dogs Millie and Nala. Alongside my creative interest in interior design and up-cycling of furniture, I enjoy travelling as it allows me to explore and experience different cultures. Growing up, I learnt to play the clarinet and piano which contributed to my love of and interest in music. I enjoy listening to a range of genres and take pleasure in watching live music; I enjoy sports activities and exercise regularly. I am very excited to be joining the Siddington team!



Miss M Smith

I am so excited to be joining Siddington C of E Primary School as the new Early years class teacher in September 2020! I began my career working in a Pre-school, first as a Childcare assistant and then as a Key worker for my own group of key children. I left Early years to begin my 3-year Teacher Training degree in 2017 at the University of Gloucestershire. In my spare time I love reading, Yoga, travelling and spending time with my family and friends. I am very keen to meet the new reception children and will ensure they feel comfortable, happy and at home in the classroom. I am also excited to form relationships with all the lovely parents that may or may not be new to the school.


Mrs Mason

Since having our three children,  I have worked in education, initially as a pre school assistant, then deputy Manager and then a Teaching Assistant at a private School. In September 2017, I joined the Siddington team in the school office. The Job is very varied and no two days are the same but I enjoy the challenge of the busy school office whilst being surrounded by happy children who thrive in our lovely setting! In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and friends and like to travel. I am in a walking group and supper club with friends and like listening to music and attending concerts.



Mr Peacock

I started my journey in education listening to readers at Kemble school when my eldest son Zachary was in year 1. I enjoyed the school environment so much I started volunteering more and more of my time before applying to work as a Midday supervisor. I became a TP in Kemble’s year 3/4 class for a year before getting the chance to work with Mrs Parmiter and the year 5/6 class. I enjoyed my time at Kemble immensely. I was then given the chance to move here to Siddington where I was made to feel part of the team immediately, getting to work with Miss Tranter and Mrs Dawson in Eagles class, I’ve had so much fun getting the opportunity to be part of the children’s learning journey,  no two days are ever the same. 
Outside of school, with both my wife and myself along with my four children all playing sports, sport dominates the Peacock household, whether It be watching, playing or talking about it.




Miss Crump

I only joined Siddington Primary School in February 2019 as a teaching partner in reception class after a career change. There was so much to learn but within a short space of time I realised how much I loved working with children and I now work breakfast club, after school club and as a midday supervisor. The children make everyday different and it’s never boring.




Miss N Horne


I have been working as a Teaching Assistant for 7 years; whilst studying for a BA(Hons) degree in Education and Lifelong Learning. After graduating, I chose to train as a teacher and am looking forward to teaching Eagles Class this term before Miss Jessop arrives. I had plans to be a Primary School teacher when I first left school myself, however life took a different course and I hope that I can inspire the children that it is never too late to give up on your aspirations!


Having taught sign language to babies and young children for a number of years, I am an advocate for encouraging children to become aware of basic sign language to help their awareness of other people’s needs. I can sometimes be found incorporating sign language into my class registration time!


I really enjoy outdoor learning opportunities, utilising the chance to get out and about alongside my Forest School leader qualification. Outside of school, as well as having two children myself, who keep me busy, I am also a Beaver Scout Leader. 


Miss P Jessop


Since I was at primary school myself, I have always wanted to become a teacher! I graduated from Oxford Brookes University as a fully qualified teacher in 2017. Since then, I have created many wonderful and happy teaching memories and I thoroughly enjoy working with children. My favourite subjects to teach are English and Art. When I am not teaching, I love to keep myself active! I enjoy running (I hope that I can make great use of the running track at school with the children), walking, swimming and yoga. I am extremely excited to join Siddington Primary School and look forward to getting to know the staff, children and parents!

Mrs Wills

Having started my career working in London for an Educational Consultants, worked in other industries and had a career break to have my two children, I am now back in an education environment. Working in the office is very varied with no two days the same. I greatly enjoy the variety of working alongside staff and children.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and socialising with friends.

Mrs H Mawson-Rose 


I joined Siddington in September 2021 for my placement whilst doing a level 2 in supporting teaching and learning in schools course. I am now working full time in Eagles class and as a midday supervisor. I have built up a great relationship with all the children in the school and really enjoy every aspect of helping them develop each day. 



Mrs H Mirams

I qualified as a teacher in 2010 and first worked in a Muslim school in Gloucester before moving schools to Swindon, which is where I first met Mrs Cook. I joined Siddington Primary as a year 5/6 teacher in October 2022, teaching on Thursdays and Fridays. I love English and Music (like Miss Tranter!) but I also enjoy maths and will be helping to make sure children love their learning in all things maths.

I have 2 young boys – Joseph and Samuel – who keep me on my toes. We love spending time as a family and going on holiday together. I also love books and play the piano and used to play soprano cornet in a brass band.


Miss Jessop
