Learning Support Assistants

Mr Matt Williams


I am originally from Llantrisant  before recently moving to a small village of Llantwit Major. I love spending time in the outdoors kayaking, running, playing squash or on my road bike.

I have worked with children as a squash coach and youth worker over many year. Although I’m relatively new to the role as a  teaching assistant, I am very passionate about helping children to learn to have fun in our lovely school and see them develop and reach their full potential. 

Miss Jenna Lloyd 


I started my time at St David's at 16 years old as a college student on placement every week. Now 12 years on, I am still very proud to be a part of the team. In my years as a teaching assistant I have worked in Nursery, Reception and year 1 and year 2. I am now currently based in Nursery and I am looking forward to the new challenges ahead throughout the next year!. 

Mrs Catherine Stone 


Originally from Bath, I joined St David’s in 2019 after teaching at schools in Somerset and South Wales. I work in Year 1 and help to teach International Languages throughout the school. I love to inspire the children to explore and learn new languages and cultures and am proud of how multilingual they have already become! In my spare time I enjoy gardening and caring for my pets.


Miss Gosia Zedler


I am originally from Poland and moved to the UK in 2004. 

In 2010, I began the role of a teaching assistant at St David's. I enjoy helping the children learn and build confidence in order for them to achieve both socially and academically. I am also a breakfast club supervisor and non teaching governor. In my free time I like traveling and art.  


Mrs Stacy Vaisey 

In September 2014 I returned to education and began a work placement here at St David’s. I was welcomed with open arms and received great advice and support throughout the duration of my course- I didn’t want to leave! A year later I was fortunate enough to officially become part of this fantastic team. I started as a 1:1 in year 1 and have moved up with the class each year. I thoroughly enjoy my role here, and it has been a pleasure to be able to follow the children’s progress and achievements along the way.
My time outside of school is spent enjoying life and making memories with my partner and our four fabulous children.


 Mrs Louise Adams


I started my journey here at St David's as a childcare student on placement in 2009. I had been to several schools during my placement time, but this was my favourite. The staff, children and ethos makes it such a lovely place to work. I was lucky enough to be asked to cover a teaching assistants maternity in 2011 and I have worked here ever since. I've worked with many children and their wonderful families over the years and have a special place in my heart for St David's. 

Being a teaching assistant is a very rewarding job and I love working in a field where I feel I am having a positive impact on those around me. AS well as being a teaching assistant, I am also a mum of a 3 year old little boy, who will soon be joining our fantastic school. I am very much looking forward to the year ahead. 


Mrs Gemma Fergusson 


I am fortunate enough to say I have been working at St David's for many years. My supportive role has been from Nursery to Year 6. I am now currently supporting individuals with additional learning needs in year 5. I have gained lots of experience and knowledge whilst working at our school and I look forward to continuing my support. 


Miss Barrett

I began working as a teaching assistant at St David’s in September 2020 and have loved my time here so far! I am currently working with the year 4 class and am passionate about helping children to learn and develop. Prior to starting at St David’s I studied both Sport Coaching and Sport Psychology at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Outside of school I enjoy coaching gymnastics and trampolining.


Mrs Sarah Maunder

I joined the wonderful team as St. David’s in November 2020 as a 1:1 teaching assistant in year 6. I have been a teaching assistant for ten years working in all year groups, I really enjoy helping all children to reach their full potential in all aspects of school life. 

I have lived in Cardiff all my life and I am married with three teenage daughters. In my spare time I enjoy travelling and  reading but most of all spending time with my family. 

I have loved every minute of my time at St. David’s and I look forward to the future of being part of the school community.
