Mrs Woodcock

Meet your teacher

Hi Ms Woodcock here! I can’t wait to be back with you all in September; I’ve worked for the trust since 2018 and have over 17 years’ experience supporting and teaching in both primary and secondary school. I have worked with lots of different age groups of children throughout Rotherham, from EYFS to Year11. I have been involved with different children under a huge rainbow of different needs. A huge part of that experience has involved working with children with ‘superpowers’, a quality that carries a label of S.E.N.D. supporting the difference and ensuring equality of their needs. I have experience working with children with a range of difficulties and challenges when facing the adventure of education and life. I truly enjoy teaching all different ages of children and the adventures it brings.

I am a huge art fan -I just love art – Helping children to become confident artists is a real passion of mine. Everyone can draw- they just need to embrace the subject, shine through with confidence using an array of basic skills to achieve inspiration work. I enjoy all kinds of different music(especially live) from relaxing, calming ocean sounds to rock and heavy metal.

I am also a huge rugby fan – Joe Marler is my hero. In my spare time I manage an under 18’s team at Mosborough RUFC– I get roped into lots of other jobs too! My two children are grown up, one at University and the other an engineering apprentice, keep me on my toes, both play Rugby so a lot of my weekend are used up as ‘mums’ taxi’ If I am not with them you will find me walking my pampered pooch (Bella)around the peak district or snuggling up to my metre-long pet corn snake – Sammy. My favourite film characters are Little Mermaid and Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy- he is soooo cute! He makes me smile when he dances!

Meet your Teaching Assistants

Mrs Clifton

Hi, I’m Mrs Clifton. I have been working at school for the past 12 years, before that I was a parent volunteer which I started as my youngest child joined Foundation stage.  I love my job and I believe I am the luckiest person in school.  I work with all classes and pupils on a weekly basis covering all teachers on their PPA time out of class.  Watching pupils grow in confidence and size from year 1 through to year 6 is a privilege. 

Out of school I have 2 things I love, family and swimming.  My family, I am a very proud mum to 3 grown up children Beth, Kate and Jack. To add to the craziness, we have 2 loveable black Labradors called Indie and Lola who I love to walk with my husband.  Then there is swimming, I have been part of the City of Sheffield Swimming Club for the past 35 years. First as a swimmer, during this time I was lucky enough to swim for Great Britain. Since retiring I have always stayed involved in the club and still coach 3 times a week after school.  

Mrs Lindley

Hi, my name is Mrs Lindley I have worked at Aston Hall School since 2004 as a teaching assistant. My role within school is working in our nurture provision supporting our most vulnerable children. I absolutely love my job building relationships with all our children. It really is such a privilege watching them grow and achieve everyday. I have two boys Billy 14 and Harry 10 which keep me very busy on weekends. I love to watch them play football. I have a little shih suh called Teddy who is just like a real life Teddy bear.  

Mrs Stickland

Hi, I’m Mrs Stickland. I’ve been a Teaching Assistant at Aston Hall for almost 9 years and was a volunteer here for 2 years before that. I have always worked within the childcare and social work industry and trained as a Nursery Nurse when I left school. I love being a part of primary school life and I have a passion to support all children to achieve their best potential in all areas and believe this is gained by helping them to feel safe and happy. Over the years, I have had the amazing opportunity to experience all year groups in school by supporting and assisting the teachers by carrying out various roles.

My personal life is just as hectic with a 16 year old son, who used to be a pupil here at Aston Hall. I also have a crazy Border Terrier called Poppy who makes us laugh every day. Some of you will have also seen me around at the local Scout Group in Swallownest. I am the Secretary on the Executive Committee and am very much involved with all sections; Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. I feel very proud to be able to give back to the community by ensuring children gain the most experiences they can and I work closely with some amazing Section Leaders.

Areas of Learning

Autumn Term

Our learning will cover Living Things, the Peak District and Anglo-Saxons. We will also be reading Stig of the Dump as our class novel.


Our topics are Earth and Space, capital cities and Vikings. Our final term’s learning will cover Plants, Technology and the World, Ancient Egypt, as well as a geographical study of Egypt. In Maths, we will do Times Tables Rockstars at least 4 times a week in order to learn all of our times tables to improve our speed and recall of these facts.
