Deeping St James C.P. School

Inspire to learn, achieve together

Year 4


Welcome to Year 4

This year in our teaching team we have Mrs Kornfeld, Mrs Glover & Mrs Simson:

Mrs Kornfeld - Class Teacher (Mon, Tues, Weds)




Hello, my name is Mrs Kornfeld, and I am thrilled to be joining the wonderful staff here at Deeping St. James this year. I am teaching alongside Mrs Glover in Year 4 and I am enjoying getting to know the children. I have been teaching for quite a few years, but this is my first time in Year 4. I have spent most of my teaching life in Year 6, although I have also taught in KS1. I have previously taught in a few different schools in Peterborough but have spent most of my career at St. John’s Primary School in Orton Goldhay, where I was Assistant School Leader. In the last few years, I have been working from home as a project lead, whilst raising my three young children. If I have any spare time, I enjoy hunting for bargains at local charity shops, cooking, going to the theatre, and writing for a local magazine.

Mrs Glover - Class Teacher (Weds, Thurs, Fri)

Hello, my name is Mrs Glover. I have been teaching at DSJ since 2001 when I joined as a newly qualified teacher. I have loved it here so much that I am still here all these years later!!!! I initially began teaching full time, but have been part time since 2008 when I had my first child. I have experience of teaching throughout the primary age but particularly enjoy teaching lower Key Stage 2.

I am subject lead for Art and Design within school and my interests generally lie in anything creative. I am passionate about subjects that allow children to express themselves, and in a way that everyone can have the opportunity to succeed.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking with our family dog and gardening. Children that I have taught previously know that I also love butterflies.

Mrs Simson - Teaching Assistant (All Week)

Hello, I’m Mrs Simson and I have been working in schools since my youngest was 3. Like many mums, I changed my career path to fit around my children. Now my girls are older, I could move away from education and take advantage of cheaper holidays (!), but I LOVE my job and I know that I make a difference to young people’s lives, so as long as DSJ need me, I will stay. (Nanny McPhee!!!)

I joined DSJ in April 2020, during the pandemic, when schools first went into bubbles. My fun and laughter at DSJ started in those strange times and I haven’t looked back!
