Meet the Team
Mr Hawley - Class Teacher
Hello, my name is Mr Hawley and I am pleased to say that I have the honour of teaching Team Perfect this year. I have been teaching for 16 years and have worked in a number of schools in Kirklees and Barnsley. I have taught at Wellgate for the past 7 years, and I love to see the look on a pupil’s face when they realise they can do something. I’m a bit of a lively character and love to laugh and share jokes with my class. I have two children who are currently at high school. They both play sport and I like to watch them achieve. I also like to play football and cricket with my friends as well as going to watch the Super Reds at Oakwell. I have a really sweet tooth and love to indulge in Ice-cream and chocolate. I love to learn about things from the past including key events and prominent figures. To date my greatest achievement is being a parent which is still a work in progress as all parents know.
Miss Hough - Teaching Assistant
Hello, my name is Miss Hough and I am one of the teaching assistants in Year 5. I enjoy making a difference in a child's life in a different way, helping encourage interests in art, crystals and rock minerals and animals. I love to learn about the world around us and how to improve my own skills. I like to learn arty things, herbs and plants and trees - their names, uses etc. I love to draw and read - two of my favourite books are Call of the Wild by Jack London, and also his book White Fang, because it tells the story from an animal's point of view. I love happy electro-pop 80s music like Smalltown Boy, Don't You Want Me Baby, Don't Go Breaking My Heart - and lots of heavy rock music!
Mrs Eaton - Teaching Assistant I absolutely love my job – it brings a smile to my face every single day. I love working with children and supporting them in everything that they do. I’m often told that I’m an incredibly kind and caring person and I believe that this helps me in the job that I do. I have two daughters who I’m incredibly proud of. I love spending time with them and my husband in Scotland which is my favourite place on the planet and it also sells the most amazing ice – cream (Cream O’Galloway Chocolate Orange). I didn’t used to enjoy doing maths but Mrs Woodcock has changed that and I absolutely love it now. I really enjoy supporting children in their maths learning – especially those who find it tricky as I understand how they might be feeling. My favourite ever children’s book is ‘Peace At Last’ which is about a family of bears.
