Introducing our Staff 2

I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for seventeen years, both in class and supporting individual children on a one-to-one basis. Working in Class 5 in the mornings, I support the class during English and Maths lessons and activities. In the afternoons I deliver interventions, which may be to individual children or groups, such as 1st Class@Number, Success@Arithmetic, BRP, Toe by Toe and individualised learning programmes. I am part of the ICT and Maths team within the school. As part of the 1-1 tutoring programme, I tutor Year 6 children after school to help them to prepare for their SATs. My interests and strengths, both in and out of school, are: Maths, computers, crafts and languages. Mrs Clark

I have worked in EYFS and KS2. Currently I am in Class 4 with Mrs O Flaherty in the mornings. In the afternoons I work with groups of children doing interventions such as 1stclass@number, success@arithmetic, BRP, Toe by Toe and Lego Therapy. Within school I am one of many First Aiders. I also help run a very successful cheerleading after school club. I am joint Art Coordinator with Mrs Rutter. I love being involved with school plays, trips and Masses. My strong points are Art and Sport. Mrs Collins
