Meet the Friezland Teaching Staff



Miss. R. Swaby




Reception Teacher

Mrs. C. Butterworth

I have been teaching at Friezland for 16 years after completing a Geology degree and a PGCE in Early Years.    As well as teaching my other roles in school are Science, Design and Technology, Geography and History, Forest Fun and Early Years Co-ordinator.   These are areas of particular interest to me and I enjoy the opportunity to further develop my skills within these subjects throughout school.

I am married with 1 child and live in Shaw with our cat called Molly.   I enjoy playing the violin, reading, paddling in the sea (if its warm) and cross stitching!


Class 2 Teacher

Mrs. G. Wilson


I came to Friezland as a supply teacher in September 2015 and enjoyed it that much I am still here! Now I teach Years 1 and 2, and I am the subject coordinator for Music, RE, Collective Worship, Eco and Healthy Schools. I began my career as a Music specialist teaching in secondary schools and play the trumpet, piano and cello. I am married with two children and have a dog called Bailey and a cat named Rossi. In my spare time, I like to read, play my musical instruments, visit the gym and go for rides on my husband’s motorbike.
