PPA Teacher

Mr Scott Norman

Originally from the beautiful location of North Devon, I moved to Cardiff in 2009 to complete my degree and teacher training. After securing my first job in the West Midlands, I couldn't wait to return to Cardiff (which I now think of as home) so thankfully two years later, I joined the team here at St David's (my second home!) in 2016. I am proud to bring a calm, organised and patient personality to the classroom and I wouldn't dream of doing any other job. I enjoy working with the children on their journey to become ambitious and confident learners ready to fulfil their lives in an ever-changing and increasingly digital world. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, including playing with my son, going for walks and, when I'm not too busy, I enjoy completing volunteer work with an adoption charity.

Miss Abigail Cooper

I am thrilled to start my teaching career here at St Davids, after completing my PGCE in UWTSD in Swansea. I have always has a passion for working with young people, this started when I began teaching as a Dance and Drama teacher in Stagecoach Performing Arts. After leaving this position and completing my BA undergraduate degree in University of Birmingham in Geography, I always felt like something was missing. So I started working for a start-up company delivering enterprise education workshops in schools across South Wales, which led me to complete my PGCE training. My hobbies outside of school include watching musical theatre, travelling and walking my two dogs on the beach.

Miss Kearns

Originally from Manchester, I moved to Cardiff in 2016 to study at Cardiff Metropolitan University. I studied an undergraduate degree in Drama and Education. After leaving I spent time working in a residential home and school with children and young adults with Autism. I then went and studied a primary PGCE at UWE in Bristol. After completion of my PGCE, I took some time out from teaching. I came back into teaching in January 2023. I spent time working in schools across Cardiff, The Vale of Glamorgan and Bridgend.  I was luckily enough to cover a supply placement in St David’s during the summer term in 2023. I loved the school’s values, students, staff, and the friendly environment that St David’s has created. I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to stay on and teach in year 6. I am excited to be spending my first teaching year in such an amazing school with fantastic pupils.
