We are a group of Primary practitioners at varying stages in our careers. In the group we have a Head Teacher, an experienced Key Stage 2 teacher, a teacher just out of their NQT year and a trainee teacher.
Kathrine is Head Teacher of a one form entry primary school. She qualified as a teacher 30 years ago and has taught pre school, nursery and primary school children, post 16s and adult learners in a wide variety of settings in very different areas of the country. Her passion is Early Years and applying Foundation Stage principles to ‘get learning right’ throughout her primary school.
Alice is an experienced Key Stage 2 teacher and is Assistant Head and Inclusion Leader in a one form entry primary school. She has also taught in a large inner city primary school where she was Outdoor Learning Leader. Alice firmly believes in active learning and the value of play. She creatively applies the best practice observed in Foundation Stage to motivate even the most reluctant learners in her Year 6 class and by doing so enables every child to achieve.
Hannah has just completed her NQT year and teaches in Year One. After graduating with a degree in French and Spanish she completed a PGCE Primary course with a specialism in French. She has worked in a variety of settings including a private day nursery, primary schools, secondary schools and tutoring teenagers. Alongside modern foreign languages, she is passionate about children learning through music and play and both are a constant theme in her classrooms!
After previously training as an Occupational Therapist and working with children who had a wide range of disabilities, Matthew made the decision that his true calling was teaching. He begins his School Direct Teacher Training programme in September 2014. Matthew will be training in a Foundation Stage Unit as he hopes to specialise as an Early Years practitioner. Due to Matthew’s previous career, he also has a keen interest in working with children who have disabilities.
