About Our Staff
Mrs C Musty
I have been Head teacher of Rodmarton Primary School since January 2015. It truly is a wonderful place to work and learn.
Previously, I was an Associate Head Teacher and Acting Head teacher of a Gloucestershire primary school. Prior to taking on leadership roles, I worked for many years as an Advanced Skills Teacher for mathematics. This involved me working with colleagues in schools across Gloucestershire to develop their practice and to drive forward school improvement.
Maths is my favourite subject. I am on a mission to dispel the myth that some people are maths people and some aren’t; every pupil can achieve in maths and reach the highest levels.
My favourite author is Michael Morpurgo. My favourite pastime is walking my dog (and 2 children) in the beautiful woodland around our home.
Miss R Bardell
A London girl at heart, I have recently relocated to Cirencester with my partner Philip who drives a tractor. So far life in the Cotswolds has been a joy, you couldn’t get a more idyllic setting than Rodmarton! The odd tractor ride after school is certainly a perk! My career began in the design industry where I worked as an Account Manager for several years in and around the London area. Having come from a family of teachers I eventually identified that teaching would be my preferred route. I taught in London for 4 years and also have experience of teaching English in Thailand and The Gambia. Teaching in London provided me with an array of opportunities and I now have a wealth of experience to assist me in my teaching practice. I am currently the SENDCO at Rodmarton School and my middle manager responsibilities are centred round the organisation and management of this. For the past 4 years I have acted as a mentor to students embarking on their own teaching careers. I enjoy sharing and demonstrating good practice to inspire others. I am a highly creative person in and out of school. Managing Art, DT and Music at Rodmarton enables me to share my passion with others. I enjoy renovating furniture at home, many Annie Sloan pots can be found under my kitchen sink and in the shed! My new class this year were even given the responsibility of painting my new desk! Outside of school I enjoy a number of different activities including tap, netball, baking and if I can fit it in shopping marathons!
Mrs S Cooksley
After graduating from University with a degree in English Literature I moved to Barcelona, Spain. Here I taught English as a foreign language to adults as well as children. During my time there I learnt to speak Spanish, and a little Catalan too. When I returned home I trained to become a primary school teacher, specialising in the Early Years. I am now also a qualified Forest School leader. We are really lucky at Rodmarton to have such a brilliant Forest School site!
Mrs R Scott
My name is Rachael Scott and I teach Oak class on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Although I am new to the area, having moved from Dorset last summer, I have been a primary school teacher for the past six years. I completed my training in Oxford where I studied a Bachelor of Arts in Education for three years. I absolutely love teaching and my favourite subjects are English and Drama. I have a husband, called Thomas, who was born and raised in Gloucestershire; so although we are new to the area, we know it very well. We have moved here with our son, Henry, for a life in the countryside!
Mrs Sarah Thorogood
I have been a teacher for 12 years and have lived and worked locally all my life. I started my teaching career at Rodmarton School and worked in Year groups 2, 3,4, 5 and 6 before moving schools and becoming part time in order to help diversify my husband’s farming business. Working back at Rodmarton is a real treat and I’m delighted to be focusing on PE across the school. I love being active and recently joined my local hockey club. I have a keen interest in the countryside and the environment and feel very lucky that my work and home life provide me with the opportunity to enjoy them both.
Miss S Stone
I was born in Cirencester and have lived in and around the area until making Rodmarton my home with Peter and our four children in 2000. I have been a classroom assistant at Rodmarton School since 2002 and have thoroughly enjoyed my role of supporting children of all age groups during this time. I feel personally enriched to be in such a position to be part of our children’s growth and development as they journey through our school.
When I am not at working, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, pets, eating out and village life
Mrs C Sharp
I have been at Rodmarton since November 2016. I live in Cirencester with my husband and 2 young sons. Previously my career was in Financial services which I have now swapped for school life. I really enjoy my role in the office which is certainly varied. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family in the beautiful countryside nearby.
