 I have worked at St David’s primary school for the last 15 years. I am very passionate about children’s well being, I particularly enjoy watching children thrive and develop through messy play. I am proud to be part of such a nurturing team.

Mr Bates

Reception Teacher 


I have worked at St David's since 2000, having become a teacher 3 years previously whilst in my 30s. Prior to being a teacher, I worked for several small, specialist banks in Cardiff. I am married with 4 children. My wife is also a primary school teacher. My eldest daughter is a lecturer at Bristol Vet School, my middle daughter graduated in 2017 and is currently working and travelling abroad. My two youngest children (Libby and Max) are at Bro Edern Welsh Medium High School. Outside of school I play golf and cricket (both badly!). As a former rugby player, I  watch most sports. I also read a lot and enjoy walking our spaniel!

Mrs Joanna Voisey

Teaching Assistant Reception am and Nursery pm


I taught for twelve years, six in Cyprus after which I came to Cardiff  where I continued to teach until taking a break to focus on family. I'm delighted to be back in the lively environment of a primary school, and to be part of the team at St David's. I love the warm, caring family atmosphere of this school, so much so that I've entrusted the education of my own children to St David's. 







Mrs Julia Rosser

Reception Teaching Assistant

I have worked here at St David's for a very long time, in fact since September 1995. At first it was only a part-time position of mornings only then in the afternoon I worked at St Teilo's High school in the special needs department covering years 7 to 10. It was in 1999 that I became full-time at St David's and have loved working across the Year groups from nursery to year 6. When I'm not at school I love to spend time with my family of two grown up sons and also enjoy reading, theatre trips and arts & craft work.







Miss Amy Williams 

Reception Teaching Assistant  

Attending a primary school myself, very similar to St David's, with the nurturing and family like ethos gave me such a solid foundation in the early years of my life, which in turn led me to have the enthusiasm and confidence to push myself to becoming the best at anything I set my mind to. This also made me determined to return the favour by encouraging children to believe in their abilities and aim to achieve their individual and unique strengths, while overcoming any difficulties and challenges they face at such a critical time in their lives.

I have been a part of St David’s CIW since 2013, working within a range of year groups, as well as the school office. Aside from school I train in Jujitsu, as well as attending the gym and most importantly spending precious time with my incredible family.

Originally from Taunton, I came to Cardiff to do my teaching degree. I graduated in 1996 with a BA hons in Education. I met my husband and got married in 1997 the same year that I began working at St David's C/W Primary school. Having taught the Reception class for many years I am now teaching some of my original pupil's children, which is lovely! I have two wonderful children and I like to spend any spare time with my family, walking our dog 'Griff'.

Mrs Gemma Fergusson

 I have worked at St David's Church in Wales Primary School for 18 years. I love my job and think it is a privilege to work with and help shape the minds of our wonderful children .

I have two children of my own at home. I have a daughter who has recently started high school and a son who is in year 2. I love to spend time with my family and friends. We do lots of fun things and have been on many adventures together. Exercise and being active is a huge part of mine and my families life .
