Senior Leadership Team

Kerry Thompson

Principal & Designated Safeguarding Lead

I have always wanted to work with children and teaching has provided me with the opportunity to do this! I have been very lucky and have had an amazing journey through the education system and becoming a teacher has not only enabled me to work with children, but also to give something back; to ensure that children in my care achieve their full potential and enjoy their time in school! I have been involved in education over 20 years, graduating from Trinity and All Saints College, Leeds in 1995, having gained a degree in Geography with Primary Education, BA Hons, QTS. I have taught in 6 different primary schools in Hull during this time, ranging from Reception up to Year 6. I have fulfilled a variety of different roles in school from being a school governor to being the Vice-Principal for the last 13 years at Southcoates Primary Academy, Hull. In December 2016, I was very privileged to be offered the role of Principal at Eastfield, a position that I have now taken up. I am proud to have joined the Eastfield family to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing, skilled team and to work alongside parents and carers to ensure the children of Eastfield continue to thrive. Qualifications: Geography with Primary Education, BA Hons, QTs (Leeds) NPQH

Rob Moody

Assistant Principal: Head of MySpace

I have enjoyed a rich and diverse roundabout route to my current post as head of behaviour support within MySpace. Having been born in Cleethorpes and raised in Grimsby I attended Springfield Primary School and Wintringham Comprehensive School before heading to Leeds Metropolitan University in 1991 to study Urban Development. Having gained BA(hons) I returned to Grimsby to weigh up my options. It was while juggling employment at B&Q alongside a musical commitment in a working band that I undertook a BTEC in Music Performance. However I knew that my professional life was lacking direction. An opportunity to use my degree education within Project Planning at North East Lincolnshire Council led to spell with the authority before a chance meeting rekindled an early interest in working with children. Following periods of voluntary work experience back at Springfield Primary Academy I returned to education at Hull University in 2000 to undertake a PGCE. My teaching career has seen me work at Edward Heneage Primary as class teacher before moving to Weelsby Primary in 2003 where I remained until September 2016. During this time I broadened my understanding of primary teaching moving through KS2 before settling in Y6 and subsequently becoming Lead Learner and Assistant Principal. The opportunity to join the innovative MySpace team at Eastfield within the Enquire Learning Trust proved a huge incentive to move in 2016 and I am thoroughly enjoying a new lease of educational life on a new journey. As for life outside of teaching, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, visiting music festivals in our camper van, as well as trying to keep fit playing football and also following the fortunes of Grimsby Town Football Club. My experiences lead me to firmly believe that life is about passing the time enjoyably and that message is the secret to a lifelong love of learning.

Katie Tordoff

Assistant Principal : Year 2 Teacher & Phase Lead

I grew up and live in Hull. I always wanted to be a teacher, but decided to study law when I went to college. I completed a year of a law degree at Hull University before realising I had made a mistake and switched to an Education Degree. After completing my Education Degree at Hull University I went on to complete my PGCE In Scarborough. In 2014 I started working for another school in Enquire Learning Trust before Joining Eastfield in September 2015. I was warmly welcomed into the Eastfield family and it feels like I have always been here. Working at Eastfield is definitely worth the 60 mile a day drive. I am currently teaching in Year 1 and I absolutely love it. I find it really rewarding watching the children develop into wonderful individuals with a passion to learn. In my spare time I love nothing more than spending time with my family and friends. Qualifications: BA (Hons) Education PGCE Advanced Early Years

Kylie Watson

Assistant Principal: Year 3 Teacher & Phase Lead

I always had an ambition to become a teacher from a very young age. After being born in Australia, I grew up in Healing, attending both Healing Primary School and then Healing Comprehensive school. Following on from this I attended Franklin College where I completed A-levels in Maths, PE and Sports Studies and ICT. In 2006, I began my exciting journey towards teaching at Sheffield Hallam University, where I spent three years completing my BA Hons Primary Education degree with QTS. I chose to stay in Sheffield for a further year, where I did supply teaching. In 2009 I was thrilled to become part of the team at Eastfield! I currently teach in year 3 and 4 and work as part of a team leading ICT and the curriculum. We are working on a new assessment system, which is very exciting. I am so proud to be part of the team at Eastfield, it is like having an extended family! As a teacher, I strive to ensure all children enjoy their learning and achieve their full potential. We focus on a collaborate approach to our learning which leads to us being independent and confident learners. I am privileged to meet and teach such lovely, determined children. Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends and spending time with my family, especially my nieces and nephews. I am also keen to try and keep fit, attending Zumba classes and occasionally going for runs- I once did a half marathon. When I get a chance, I love going abroad on holidays.

Shenley Sparkes

Year 5 Teacher
Upper Key Stage 2 Team

After leaving school I completed my level 3 Childcare in Education certificate and started to work in nurseries. I decided that I had wanted to progress and move on to working with children within a school. While I was working I had the opportunity to travel and live in Iceland for a while. After I had been there for three years I decided I wanted to come back home and work in a school. After gaining employment in a school as a teaching assistant I knew this is what I had wanted to do. Furthermore, I went through my teacher training and became a teacher. Teaching at Eastfield is wonderful, it is a pleasure to be here. I like to spend lots of time with my family and I enjoy socialising with friends.

Kerry Brown

Teaching Assistant
Upper Key Stage 2 Team

During my time in school, I have always had the ambition to help others achieve things along with progressing myself. I went through college earning a double Distinction for Tourism and Business management and went onto University to continue these studies. I completed three years and qualified with a BA degree. I started teaching swimming from the age of 18 and continue to do so at our local pool as I love to help children achieve their goals and watch them succeed. I then had a break from education to focus on my family life and then began my teacher training three years later, I completed this through covid and kept pushing forward to achieve my own goals. I gained my first placement at a local school and loved teaching. However, this then ended, and I decided to take on the role of a HLTA and I absolutely love providing that little bit of extra encouragement for children alongside their class teacher. I enjoy helping children to achieve their goals and that I am able to see their smiles once they have done so. I have only recently joined Eastfield but already it feels like home. I enjoy time with my family and friends and watching my son enjoying his sports outside of school. I cannot wait to work with all of the wonderful children at Eastfield and aid them in reaching their potential.

I believe that these skills empower students to excel not only academically but also in life beyond the classroom.

Helen Brown

Teaching Assistant
Lower Key Stage 2 Team

After graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University in 1997 with a degree in Playwork, I worked as a Play Specialist in a hospital for 4 years, before moving to work in Youth Justice as a Case Manager. For many years I was also a part time Youth Worker at various centres in the area, including Immingham. (So it makes me feel very old when I see that those teenagers who I worked with, are now all grown up and bringing their own children to the school!!) After 13 years working in Youth Justice, I decided a change of career was needed and undertook some voluntary work in a school, which made me realise that this was the job I was meant to do. I retrained as a TA and spent 5 happy years working at East Halton Primary school, before being lucky enough to join the Eastfield family in July 2023. Which I am proud to be a part of. The most rewarding part of the job, for me, is helping children to reach their full potential and watching them grow in confidence. My favourite subjects are history, geography, PHSE and science. I am a massive F1 fan and have supported McLaren for over 30 years. Whenever we can, my boys, husband and I like to go on adventures, fossil or sea glass hunting, waterfall chasing and exploring all the beautiful places in the UK.

I enjoy bringing the curriculum to life through exciting topics which the children find both engaging and relevant. At home, looking after my two gorgeous children keeps me very busy! I love being outdoors (weather permitting!) and searching for adventure and new experiences with my husband and children. Our favourite things to do include: going for walks, playing at the park and trips to the seaside. I am also a keen gardener and put these skills to good use by growing some of my own fruit and veg. When I get the chance, I love to read. I am determined to pass my passion for reading on to my own children and to the children I teach so that they can experience the enjoyment of being transported to exciting new worlds through the books that they read.

I have worked in education as a teacher since graduating in 1994 and I am looking forward to bringing my experience and enthusiasm to working with the great team of educators and children here at Eastfield Primary. After completing my BEd degree I spent my NQT year teaching in Suffolk before returning back to my roots in N. E. Lincolnshire. After 16 years teaching locally, I had the exciting opportunity to move to Switzerland with my family for 2 years. Whilst there I was fortunate enough to be able to do some supply teaching in the International School which my children attended. This experience reinforced my belief in engaging, enquiry based learning that provides children with the skills and attributes to become lifelong learners. My family and I returned to Grimsby at the end of 2013 and since then I have enjoyed teaching across several year groups locally. In my free time I love to spend time with my family, going for walks in the countryside or along the coast and trying my best to keep fit by taking part in Zumba classes.

Laura Dalling

MySpace Teacher & Eastfield's SENDCO

I always had an ambition to become a teacher, and was often found playing the role as a child. I was lucky enough to have some very inspiring teachers at primary school and this led to my choice of the primary phase. I started my journey into teaching at Bishop Grosseteste University, where I studied BA (Hons) Special Educational Needs and Education Studies. After leaving university, I went straight into my PGCE, taking a teaching role in an Emotional, Social and Behavioural school for year 6 to year 11. It is here that my passion for SEND grew and my capabilities of a teacher began to develop. From here, I worked in a small, rural primary school, taking on leadership roles and developing my understanding of SEND. I moved to Myspace in Eastfield in 2018. I was immediately welcomed into the Eastfield family and I have thoroughly enjoyed developing my practice with Myspace and Eastfield pupils and staff. I undertook the SENDO role in September 2020. I am excited to continue my professional development in such a nurturing, collaborative school.
