I have been working at Lucas Vale as one of the Reception Class Teachers since September, although it feels longer. With my range of experience in different Early Years settings, I can honestly say that this is a very special school and a welcoming place, for the children and parents alike.

I am proud to work at Lucas Vale, as it is a truly amazing school. The children are happy, polite, engaging and excited by learning. Their passion is so infectious!

As I work in Early Years, I am truly committed to ensuring every child is able to achieve their best. I work hard to create an environment that supports, extends and engages the learning of every child. I hope by doing this the children leave Reception inspired by learning and are happy active participants in their learning. I am passionate about every child being able to access the curriculum and have ventured onto my own learning journey with Makaton to facilitate this.

Additional Roles

 

I have worked at Lucas Vale Primary since September 2011 and I am proud to have been on such an amazing journey over the past 6 years. I have extensive experience working in Early Years and I enjoy enabling my pupils to become active and independent learners while fostering their early development.

I find teaching extremely rewarding and fulfilling. I feel particularly inspired by learning in the early years as this is a play-based environment where pupils are encouraged to express themselves through the use of different media and using both the indoor and outdoor environment. Pupils in this stage of learning show tremendous progression as they are assessed in 7 areas of learning working towards achieving their early learning goals at the end of Reception year.

I find teaching at Lucas Vale enjoyable and I look forward to continuing on my journey at this outstanding school.
