We have a dedicated and committed core team of teaching staff. Staff are supported by external specialist teachers in various fields depending on the topic the children are learning.

Meet our staff

Michelle Kelly – Headteacher
I have been Headteacher, of Churcham, since 2010. I really enjoy being part of this wonderful school family. I have been teaching for a very long time but still enjoy learning new things with the children. They usually show me how all the technology works. My favourite lesson has to be English. When I’m not at school, I enjoy reading and going to the theatre. I also enjoy travelling to new and exciting places.

Tina Birch – Finance Administrator
I have worked at Churcham since 2008 and I’m based in the office. If you visit or telephone the school, I will be the first person you meet. When I’m not at school, I enjoy listening to music and going out with my friends to listen to bands. I own and love my 2 Vespa Scooters.

Emma Shakespeare – Class 1 Teacher (YR/KS1)
I teach in Class 1 on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  I lead English and the Early Years at Churcham and Ashleworth.  I really enjoy teaching the same group of children for 3 years because I get to see the children make so much progress over this time.  I also see the children grow in confidence/mature over the 3 years.  My favourite part of the day is story time and the children always get so involved in our story sessions!   When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my family - we often go for walks and bike rides in the local area.  I also enjoy running and I play netball for a team.

Jane Shaw – Class 1 Teacher (YR/KS1)
I am an EYFS / KS1 teacher and Science Lead at Churcham Primary School. This is my second Year at Churcham and I love the family spirit and warm, welcoming community for the children, parents and staff. Outside of school life, I love to spend time with my family and friends, bake lots of delicious cakes, and walk my three dogs. 

Esther Deackes – Class 2 Teacher (Y5/6)

I am a KS2 teacher at Churcham Primary School (Years 5 & 6). I am the subject leader of Computing and Mathematics; two subjects which I really enjoy. As well as a subject leader, I am the Safeguarding Lead and staff governor. I've been at Churcham Primary School since the start of my teaching career and I love the 'family feel' that Churcham offers. In my spare time I love to walk my dog (Rusco), go to the gym and spend quality time with my family. 

Rebecca Tetlow - Class 2 Teacher (Y3/4)

I am a KS2 teacher at Churcham Primary School but mostly you'll find me with the Y3/4 children. I enjoy teaching in a practical and fun way and love to read as it takes you places you've never been before! Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family, exploring new places and cooking delicious meals!

Richelle Daniels – SENDCO 

I started my journey as a class teacher teaching Reception and Key Stage One before moving into my current role as SENCo. I enjoy my SENCo role as I get the opportunity to work with children across the school and provide individual support to the children and parents. In my spare time I love spending time with my family and friends.

Victoria Asher – Class 1 Teaching Assistant
I’m a KS1 teaching assistant at Churcham Primary School in class 1. I support the teachers in the classroom taking groups for subjects, teaching phonics, and doing one to one interventions. I've been at Churcham Primary School for 10 years. In my spare time I love to go for walks in the woods, spend time with my family, and go to the gym

Sharon Tippins – Teaching Assistant and Midday Supervisor

Kay Benton – 1:1 Teaching Assistant
I joined Churcham Primary school in January 2023 and work in Class 2 as a 1-1 Teaching Assistant. Outside of school I like to read and take my dog, Barney, for walks. 

Dan Brain – PE Teacher
I am Churcham's PE teacher. I have been teaching here since 2022 and I have loved every minute here. In my spare time I play football, cricket and golf. But I love any sports. The gym is one of my main hobbies throughout the week. I enjoy socialising with my friends and going out especially for a Nandos. I love summer with the evenings light till late, and the temperatures being warm for when I finish teaching. 

Jade Henderson - Nursery Assistant

I'm a nursery assistant at Acorns. I love being apart of the children's early years and watching them grow into amazing little humans! Outside of nursery I do illustration, horde books and spend time with my cat.
