Mrs Goodwin

Hi! My name is Mrs Goodwin and I'm English leader. I have worked at Jesmond Gardens since 2008, working in both KS1 and Y5/6. I'm currently working in Year One, where I'm really enjoying teaching phonics again. I love writing stories, especially spooky stories with a twist. 


In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family: my husband and my little boy, Preston. We spend a lot of time in play areas, the park and swimming. I really enjoy these things but when I do get time to myself, I love to read.



Miss Perry

Name: Miss Perry

My role in school:  5/6 unit leader and a year 6 teacher


Something I like about Jesmond Gardens Primary School:  Jesmond Gardens is an amazing community to be part of! The colourful environment, our use of technology and the family feel are just some of the fabulous things about our school. An added bonus is that we get to learn in comfort, wearing slippers when we're in the classroom.


What I enjoy doing in my spare time:  I love to travel and experience new things - especially different foods! I am from Northern Ireland, so when I get a chance it is also nice to get a “wee trip home”.
