PE uniform:
Whitehall Clothiers sell our PE Kit although items can be purchased from other shops. Items do not need the school logo on them but must be the colour required. Please write your child’s name on all their clothing- it helps enormously if they get lost or mixed up with another child’s clothes! Please note we are not responsible for any lost items of clothing, we teach children to take full responsibility for their possessions. If for any reason clothing is lost, we endeavour to help locate it but we do not replace uniform of any kind (please see our lost property policy).

Year 1 Teacher

I have been teaching for 5 years now and despite being new to Lucas Vale as a teacher, I am not new to the wonderful opportunities that it has and still is providing in education. I attended Lucas Vale as a child myself and am delighted to be part of the school that contributed so greatly to my childhood.

I started off my career in teaching in EYFS because I feel that the foundation of a child’s education is paramount to their development and plays an integral role in their future.  I have decided to take my journey on to year 1 as I wanted to see what “life after early years” looked like with the intentions of nurturing their ability through a creative curriculum.

I greatly enjoy teaching, as no two children are the same and children continue to demonstrate their curiosity day to day. I believe children should be encouraged to investigate the world around them and never stop asking questions. I hope that as a teacher I will be able to guide my children to build resilience and develop greater independence, ready for the year ahead.

Sifa Huseyin
Year 1 Teacher

My name is Sifa Huseyin and I am a Year 1 teacher in Bolt class. I have worked at Lucas Vale Primary School since 2011. I started working in the Nursery, and then moved to Reception, followed by Year 2 and now Year 1.

I enjoy working here because we have such lovely children and families as well as fantastic, hard working and dedicated members of staff. The school is like a big family and we all care for one another, helping each other wherever we can.

I hope to inspire the children to reach their full potential and develop a love of learning through an exciting and creative curriculum.

Additional roles

 

I am new to Lucas Vale as I started in September 2017. I am very glad to be part of such a creative and successful school community. I have already been fortunate enough to meet lots of wonderful children who love to learn, not least in my fantastic class, and I can’t wait to get to know you all even better.

As a Year 1 teacher, I am privileged to be able to guide the children through their first year in Key Stage 1. I believe in providing holistic, child-centred education that ensures all of the children feel confident in themselves and excited about their learning. I am sure that all the children in Year 1 will try hard in their learning and make lots of friends this year.

As Geography lead, I encourage the children to be curious about the world around them and celebrate the diversity in our community. With so much to discover and explore, I hope we will have some learning adventures this year!
