Teaching Staff

Reception and Year 1 Teacher / SENCo – Miss Hudson

I have been teaching for 12 years and have taught EYFS and KS1.  I enjoy teaching the whole curriculum but my favourite subjects to teach are English and Art.  I love helping children reach their full potential and I aim to inspire them to develop a love of learning.  I enjoy seeing children’s self-belief develop over the year and I aim for all children to leave my class feeling self-confident and resilient.

Reception and Year 1 Teacher – Mrs Pratt

I qualified in 2012 and taught for three years before taking maternity leave.  Throughout my teaching career I have taught KS1 and lower KS2.  After a few years at home with my children I was fortunate to secure a post at Martlesham as a Learning Support Assistant and after a year I returned to teaching.  I love for the children to be excited about their learning and I enjoy providing them with engaging learning opportunities which challenge their thinking.

Year 1 and 2 Teacher – Miss Hallworth

I have been a teacher for four years now and during this time I have really enjoyed teaching in Year 1.  Before I qualified as a teacher, I worked as a teaching assistant and I was fortunate enough to spend time supporting children in both KS1 and KS2.  I love teaching KS1 and I am passionate about encouraging the children in my class to develop a love of learning from an early age. I like to encourage a ‘superhero’ growth mindset in my classroom where the children develop belief, confidence and resilience in their learning.  I really enjoy teaching many areas of the curriculum but I have a particular interest in Maths, English and I also enjoy sports.

Year 3 Teacher – Mrs Newton

I have teaching for over twenty years and have taught all year groups, from Reception to Year 6 in both state and independent schools. Since my ‘retirement’ I have missed the classroom and children so much that I work on a supply basis. I am delighted to be working at MPA for the Autumn Term.  My specialist subjects are English and History, but I enjoy teaching the all areas of the curriculum.  I really enjoy building relationships with the children so I can support them on their learning journey.

Year 4 and 5 Teacher – Mr Lazarus

I am an experienced primary school teacher and I have taught Year 2 to Year 5.  I qualified in Australia and have enjoyed bringing that experience to the UK.  My ideal classroom brings lots of enthusiasm and passion for learning.  I enjoy teaching all areas of the curriculum however, I have a particular interest in teaching computing and sports.  This year I am excited to lead the MPA football team.

Year 6 Teacher – Miss Scrutton

I have been teaching for six years now and have taught throughout KS2.  I love teaching because I enjoy building positive relationships with the children, identifying how they learn best and using this to support them to reach their potential.  I have a particular interest in Maths and I lead this subject.
